Thank You and Spring Book Group

Thank you to all of our guest bloggers who shared so many excellent web resources with us during Digital Learning month. There are so many great things going on in the state and so many excellent educators. We were glad to highlight 28 of them in this blog. We had a great time compiling and sharing all of the resources through the blog. We also want to thank all of the dedicated educators from our state and beyond who checked in daily and who are implementing these tools to enhance teaching and learning in their schools. The blog will remain open, so we encourage educators to continue to use it as a resource for good web 2.0 resources. Please continue to comment on ways that you are using the resources in your work. Also, if there's a web 2.0 resource you'd like to share, please let us know.

Spring Book Group

Beginning March 4th the IDOE Office of eLearning Spring Book Group will be reading and discussing online The Connected Educator: Learning and Leading in a Digital Age by Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach and Lani Ritter Hall.

The authors say, “This book is a journey into what it means to be a learner first and an educator second. It is a book about you, about your professional learning. It’s also about us—the collective us in education—and how our own learning can transform student learning through a systemic vision of professional development.”

Learn more about the book at their website. If you want to become a more connected educator and learner and have the chance to attend a summer eLearning conference for FREE, then join us for our eLearning Book Group.

We know this will be an enjoyable learning experience for all of us and we look forward to meeting you online! If you have any questions please contact Meri Carnahan.
