THE STORY:

About PLP & Connected Educator Month

For Powerful Learning Practice, it all started when PLP's co-founder and CEO Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach wrote a book called The Connected Educator: Learning and Leading in a Digital Age (with Lani Ritter Hall). Sheryl was then asked to serve on a technical working group at the Department of Education. This group was exploring ideas for leveraging communities and networks as a means of professional learning for educators everywhere. It was around that table that the idea to have a month to celebrate connected educators was born. 

Why PLP is helping support the cause

PLP by design is a professional learning company for connected educators. It just makes perfect since that we would be intricately involved in helping to raise funds to not only support connected educators in their professional learning endeavors, but to make Connected Educator Month more than an event, more than a month, worldwide.

PLP wants to help support the wider cause of helping Connected Educator Month go global, but also out of the money we raise, we can help support creative ideas for innovating beyond the current scope - and come up with things to benefit the wider community - things like online courses, apps, web 2.0 tools, or whatever your imagination can come up with. None of us is as smart as all of us - so help us crowdfund the next edge of innovation!

Join our fundraising team, help support connected education worldwide, and also as a team member, earn perks like t-shirts, hats, free courses, books, and more. Not to mention the amazing prizes you can win by being part of the overall CEM fundraising effort. Help us reach our goal by donating -- $10, $15, or $20 - every little bit helps.

What Your Support Will Do

Donating to Connected Educator Month will allow the Connected Educators initiative to support connected education year round, develop a variety of tools and resources to help the less-connected get engaged, and foster innovation in the field.  

So far, Connected Educator Month reached 4 million educators and others around the world in 2012; 14+ million in 2013, providing hundreds of thousands of hours of professional development opportunities along the way. Imagine what it could do if it continued to engage educators all year, instead of only for a month.
