If you are reading this via my Tweet then the answer is obviously yes. However, some of you are getting this via email from me.
What does it mean to be connected? Why am I asking? Those of you via Twitter know the answer so pardon my rant for the next few paragraphs!
Those of you not connected may not even know that August is Connected Educator Month #ce12
Why should it matter? What’s the big deal?
As many of you may know I am still fairly new to the Twitterverse – just 1 year as of a couple of weeks ago actually. However, I have shared with several of you all of the great ideas, articles, videos, quotes, and relationships I have found and built during such a short time.
I have discovered since becoming a Connected Educator I have grown personally and professionally by leaps and bounds. This has been because of all the great teachers and leaders I have connected with and learned from on a daily basis via reading, blogging, conversing directly, or #chatting.
For those of you I have had the pleasure to work with on Twitter – Thank you for helping me become a better leader and educator.
My challenge for those of you not Connected – Get Connected! You will be amazed at the wealth of knowledge at your fingertips. You won’t have to find it as it will be provided for you. You will make connections with great people, teachers, and leaders from around the world. Through the sharing you will become a better teacher, leader, and person.
Take the risk.
Take a chance.
