Connected Educator, the term refers to an educator who is involved in collective learning, sharing and exploration of what learning is for themselves and their students. As we know the world is changing rapidly, our education system needs to be up to date with all the technology changes.
There are many teaching approaches that many educational institutions implement to improve their learning standards. As an educator, one should acquire knowledge continuously to develop students with 21st century skills. Many educators have already recognized the need of global collaboration to find the solutions to problems that our education system is facing and to accelerate student achievement at maximum pace. They’re always on their way to improve their Personal Learning Network (PLN) in order to explore and exchange their knowledge with other educators.
Being a connected educator, one can utilize his connections to adopt best and brightest practices of teaching from other educators. Connected educators develop professionally by learning from each other.
