As we think together about the Connected Learning principles, we want to invite you to several upcoming events.

This week on Teachers Teaching Teachers:
Wednesday, March 21st. Live webinar 9pm EST.
Join Paul Allison and the TTT team (Chris Sloan and Monika Hardy) to talk about Connected Learning/connecting-our-learning. Elyse Eidman-Aadahl along with a group of NWP teacher leaders who attended the Digital Media and Learning 2012 Conference will share their thoughts and points of inquiry emerging from DML, we will hear a little more about the connected learning principles overall and think together about the meaning of all these things for our work, networks, and learning in general.

A series of webinars will highlight ways that the Connected Learning principles are being practiced by colleagues in a range of professional contexts.

Are you interested in blogging about any of these webinars in particular? If so, we would love you to share your blog on Digital Is and we will push it out to the larger NWP community and the DML community.
