Connected Educator Profile (Day 7) – Beth Still – Scotsbluf, Nebraska

The United State Department of Education has declared the month of October Connected Educator Month. According to,  the website set up to support this event, the Mission of Connected Educator Month is to  promote educators learning and collaborating through online communities of practice and social networks.With this in mind I reached out to my Personal Learning Network (PLN) via Twitter, my favorite resource for connecting, and tweeted the following:

As is normally the case, my network came through! When I have a question on an educational topic or want some feedback for one of my crazy ideas, I have a network of amazing educators at my fingertips that never cease to amaze me. Being a “Connected Educator” is awesome!

Why do you choose to be a connected educator?

Being a connected educator has allowed me to make connections with people from around the world that I normally I would not have been able to connect with. I have become much more aware of other perspectives which has caused me to become more open minded. One of the most special things I have done over the last few years is manage the Newbie Lounge at the annual ISTE educational technology conference. I cannot express how much being connected has helped me grow both personally and professionally.

Where can other educators connect with you online?
