What is #CEduAD?
In the beginning...
It started as a Connected Educator Appreciation Day on 20th of October, 2018. It was a conference designed to bring together connected educators and celebrate them though 8 hours of live streamed conversations. This allowed for round table discussions on various topics about how educators are using technology in the classroom, so that they can share and learn from each other. People participated by joining an on-air panel for an hour, by just watching or engaging with us via Twitter. We wanted that day, the 20th of October, to be about you and celebrating your leadership by sharing it and inspiring others. We've shared the details about the event on our site, Elitewritings.com.
Since that day, #CEduAD grew into an online platform that hosts monthly meetups: #CEMM and connects teachers around the globe throughout the year.
Keep your calendar open for every 3rd Saturday in a month for #CEMM talk and book a whole day on the 3rd Saturday in October for Connected Educators Appreciation Day.
