Connected Learning Opportunity: Mobile Learning

Join us for a session on Mobile Learning with guest presenter Rob De Lorenzo.

Rob has been involved in mobile learning as long as I can remember.  Back in 2007, when most people had not heard about web 2.0, Rob was already predicting the importance of mobile technology for learning.

Here is where Rob shares some of his learning:

Date:   Feb. 25th, 2014

Connecting With #EdCampWR

So maybe you have never been to an edCamp, and you are curious about why they have become such a popular way for people to learn about education.  If you have not attended an edCamp, today is a perfect day to just lurk and observe from a distance, or share in the learning through the Twitter feed.

Mark Carbone links you to what you need to know here, and Donna Fry explains why the weather doesn’t have to be a barrier to learning here.

Join us for connected learning driven by the needs of educators at #EdCampWR!


Curated Learning

Another simple way to keep connected with what is happening around the province, country and world is to follow pages that are curated by other educators.

Here are a few great examples to get you started.  Go to the page, and click “follow” for email updates.

Connecting With Other Educators – #FollowFriday, #FF

It’s a “snow day” in most of Ontario today.  What better time to take a few minutes and CONNECT with other educators!  Friday offers the perfect opportunity to get on twitter and find great people to learn from.  Search the hashtag #FollowFriday (or #FF) as all day people recommend other Twitter users to follow.

Doug Peterson (@dougpete) is one of the best promoters of connecting Ontario educators.  He religiously posts his #FollowFriday lists of Active Ontario Educators and today is the day to link to those active sharing people and do professional learning 24/7.
