Connected Educator Month (CEM)is just a little over a week away! This October marks the third year of CEM and will bring a treasure trove of virtual activities, live events and resources for educators around the globe. Originally spearheaded by the U.S. Department of Education, CEM strives to get more educators digitally connected to improve their practice.

And... this year, CEM is global. While in the past it was based mainly a US event, now Australia, New Zealand, Norway, and countries are in on the fun! So be sure to join in and become a part of this global month-long event. You can do anything from joining a book club, to listening to a podcast. Or you can think bigger and host an event - virtual or in person - of your own! The CEM website is an incredible wealth of tools and information, but here are a few links to get you started.
