Hello Fellow Readers!
I’ve been dying to share this big news on my blog… so here it is!
This May, Arcadia University’s School of Education is offering educators the unique opportunity to work with Meenoo Rami, author of the must-read education book of the year, Thrive: 5 Ways to (Re)Invigorate Your Teaching, co-founder of Twitter’s #EngChat, and our very own Transformative Teacher, through participating in her dynamic six-week online course, “Teacher Practice in a Connected World.”
In Rami’s course, participants will become “Connected Educators,” using networking and digital technologies to build professional learning networks and develop pedagogical practices that empower students to create and learn in authentic ways. Through this experience, learners will become energized to re-envision their practice and build a powerful community that shares educational resources and support.

This new course is part of a new 4-course certificate program for educators of all stripes (K-12, higher ed, non-profit folks – if you work with learners, this is for you) called “Connected Learning.” Other courses in the series will in include:
- Connected and Networked Learning,
- Democracy, Education, and the 21st Century,
- “We Inquire, We Design” 21st Century STEM Education.
- Young Adult Literature [and New Media], and
- Reading and Writing as Making
ALSO the program will offer 1-credit, week-long “Connected Learning Camps” on topical issues such as:
- Digital Storytelling (with WHYY)
- Grant-writing for Connected Educators
- MakerEd and MakerSpaces
- New topics voted upon by the Arcadia Connected Learning Network (the students in the cert program)
