CONNECT THE DOTS: When we last mentioned Connected Educators Month, details were sparse and all events were in planning phase. My what a difference a few weeks makes -- #CE12 (that’s Connected Educators Month in Twitterspeak) is kicking into full gear! The festivities begin Wednesday, August 11th at 11am EST with a panel on peer-to-peer development, moderated by none other than EdSurge friend, Mr. Steve Hargadon. Later in the day, catch a glimpse of #edtech in the U.S. from a historical perspective as all current and former directors of the Office of Education Technology -- Mr. John Bailey, Ms. Karen Cator, Mr. Tim Magner, Ms. Susan Patrick, and Ms. Linda Roberts -- come together for an online panel on Connected Learning and the State of Education. Explore the more than 80 calendar events here, and be sure to get your fill before the first bell rings!
