September 13, 2016, is ConnectED Day with programming for educators

I wanted to share this info I received from the Alliance for Excellent Education. Looks like a great day for educators, which I always think means parents too. I will actually be doing the last minute runaround for the MN Fall Broadband Conference that starts the same day but I will try to at least follow on Twitter…

Join us on Tuesday, September 13, 2016, for ConnectED Day to celebrate the three-year anniversary of President Obama’s ConnectED initiative.

ConnectED Day recognizes the progress made to connect students to high-speed broadband and help educators and leaders build their capacity to transform learning with technology.

On ConnectED Day, several education organizations will host webinar discussions, Twitter chats, or blog on topics aligned with the ConnectED and the Future Ready Schools® (FRS) initiatives.

FRS is proud to support the effective use of technology in America’s classrooms. Several FRS tools, including a comprehensive interactive Planning Dashboard, a new one-stop Hub for district leaders’ ongoing professional learning activities, and in-person summits and workshops, are available at no cost and can be found at www.futureready.org.

Explore the growing list of ConnectED Day events, share with your colleagues, and join us online for ConnectED Day on September 13.
