With Connected Educator Month right around the corner, we wanted to tell you about an exciting new partnership between Connected Educators and SmartBrief. Connected Educator SmartBrief is a free weekly publication that seeks to bring together educators from around the world and from all disciplines who are moving toward a fully connected and collaborative profession.
Connected Educator Month, an initiative of the U.S. Department of Education and key industry partners, brings together millions of educators during the month of October for professional development opportunities. Now in its fourth year, Connected Educator Month is expected to draw millions of professionals from over 140 countries.
Connected Educator SmartBrief will aim to keep these educators engaged and informed of timely news and developments internationally in K-12 and higher education throughout the year. Each week we’ll feature the latest news and stories from leading education sources in areas such as Stories from the Field, Tech Tools & Trends, Future Ready Leaders, and Connecting Classrooms. In addition you’ll get updates specifically about Connected Educator Month and other Connected Educator initiatives.
