We hope you are enjoying Unit 1! We have seen that many educators learn best when they are able to connect with peers within the course in a way that suits their learning preferences. Thus, throughout this course there will be a number of opportunities for you to extend your learning and connect with others.
First, we have created an opportunity for you to participate in virtual Professional Learning Communities (PLCs). Using the PLC guides in the course, call in to a conference call or google hangout and engage in meaningful discussion each week. Sign up for a virtual PLC using the sign-up form here and check out the PLC guides here.
Second, we are creating a Voxer group. Voxer is a live messaging application that brings push-to-talk technology to smartphones. Learn more about Voxer in the “Connected Educator Corner” here and sign up to join the group here!
Finally, you can use our twitter hashtag, #all_learn. If you’re new to twitter, look for in depth directions in the Connected Educator Corner in Unit 2!
