Don’t Miss Out: Get ConnectED and Thrive with Meenoo Rami

Hello Fellow Readers!

I’ve been dying to share this big news on my blog… so here it is!

Thrive: 5 ways to (Re)Invigorate Teaching

Thrive: 5 ways to (Re)Invigorate Teaching

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.  To learn more or register for the course, click here: http://goo.gl/vp05Ez (the course code is ED676).

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)
  • Gamification
  • Grant-writing for Connected Educators
  • MakerEd and MakerSpaces
  • New topics voted upon by the Arcadia Connected Learning Network (the students in the cert program)

Full disclosure — I helped to develop this program with Meenoo and Christina Cantrill of Digitalis and National Writing Project fame. With collaborators like these two, you really can’t go wrong.

So, if you want more information on the program, you can contact me – Dr. Kira Baker-Doyle, Director of Programs in Literacies, Technologies, and Citizenship Studies at Arcadia University School of Education:
