Good Opportunities for Learning Online

Is your personal (or professional) learning network (PLN) is an important component in how you learn and share? It is for me. Because of that I am looking forward to two special events this month: Connected Educator Month and the 2013 K-12 Online Conference.

Connected Educator Month begins October 1. Topics include collaboration, Common Core State Standards, community-building, connected learning, networking, open educational resources, professional development, how to use technology, new and emerging technology, 21st-century skills and NETS, and many more in a variety of event types such as blogs, MOOCs, podcasts, Twitter and online chats, more than 100 webinars, and more.

The 2013 K-12 Online Conference begins October 21. The strands this year are Open Learning, Outside Learning, Leading Learning, and Building Learning. Shannon Miller, Steve Hargadon, Audrey Watters, Kathy Cassidy, Larry Ferlazzo, Sylvia Martinez, and Gary Stager are speaking. And they are just the keynoters! Many other educators who are doing interesting and exciting activities with their students as they learn are also sharing their experiences and their ideas.

Hope I see you at the conferences!
