The United State Department of Education has declared the month of October Connected Educator Month. According to ConnectedEducators.org
, the website set up to support this event, the Mission of Connected Educator Month is to promote educators learning and collaborating through online communities of practice and social networks.
With this in mind I reached out to my Personal Learning Network (PLN) via Twitter, my favorite resource for connecting, and tweeted the following:
As is normally the case, my network came through! When I have a question on an educational topic or want some feedback for one of my crazy ideas, I have a network of amazing educators at my fingertips that never cease to amaze me. Being a "Connected Educator" is awesome!

Why do you choose to be a connected educator?
I have been providing resources for teachers on the Web since 1995. However, now that Web 2.0 is here, I am a connected educator because I can learn so much from all of my connections! I have access to creative educators, experts in the field, and others who like to share their findings. It is a win-win for me!
Where can other educators connect with you online?
