ConnectED Month Launches
Is everyone ready for Connected Educators month
starting October 1? Of course you are! Last year,
the DOE hosted daily online conversations about
all things edtech. This year, the event is being run
under the auspices of interim director of edtech
Richard Culatta, who spoke with T&L managing
editor Christine Weiser at our most recent SchoolCIO
Summit. He said of the event: “Last year, nearly
100,000 hours of professional development were
completed virtually through Connected Educator
Month. I hope this year we have significantly more.
Last year, most teachers were doing this event on
their own. This year, we really hope schools step
up and make time for their teachers to participate
Only a small handful of the events during Connected
Educators Month are hosted by the Department of
Education—the rest are curated from a wide variety
of sources. Tune in to our free offering on October 18, where we will be broadcasting three
Livestream panel discussions from our New York Tech Forum.
