33 Educators Reflect on Connected Educators Month

CONNECT-ED: In celebration of Connected Educator's Month, the New York Times has reached out to all of it's education-related op-ed columnists to answer two simple questions: 1) What's one important thing you've learned through your Personal Learning Network (PLN)? and 2) What must-have person, organization, or group should be in every educator's PLN? The who's who list of columnists includes some familiar names -- most notably Mr. Larry Ferlazzo, Mrs. Shelly Terrell, and Mr. James Paul Gee -- alongside an assortment of teachers, administrators, and entrepreneurs. Our favorite answers come from Mr. Vlad Gutkovich of Flocabulary, who cautions that "All the technology, software, tools and other 'innovations' out there don’t go very far unless they’re implemented with dedication by hard-working, passionate teachers in supportive environments." And we double down on his PLN must-have: friend of edSurge and unwavering edtech advocate, Ms. Audrey Watters.
