Goals

1. Understand the value of being both a consumer and a contributor in your professional learning network.

2. Commit to being a connected, resourceful life-long learner.

3. Celebrate each other’s TEC21 achievements through today’s mini-conference format.

Here are some ways TEC21 facilitators and teachers connect online to further build and strengthen their professional learning network:

Twitter: Follow @TEC21_LuthEd the facilitators and many other educators who have embraced this powerful communication tool. Follow and use these hashtags #TEC21lcms & #LuthEd when tweeting!

Facebook: Stay connected with everyone by engaging with TEC21 Educators going all the way back to “Season 1”. What a wonderful way to receive a life-time of support from one another. Also, please help us get the word out to as many teachers as possible about the TEC21 Workshop Program by “Liking” us on the TEC21 Facebook Page

Pinterest

Pinterest: Follow TEC21’s collaborative board and we’ll invite you to pin along with hundreds of other teaches on the shared board! If you don’t receive an invitation, be sure to let one of the facilitators know so we can add you as a collaborator.

Dear TEC21 Teachers,

As educators, we all know how hard it is to keep up with the needs of students. TEC21 recognizes the extra effort it takes to learn, stretch and grow to provide Technology Enriched Classrooms. We applaud every school who has given the green light to allow teachers to participate in our workshops, and every teacher who has stepped outside his or her comfort zone to be vigorously challenged. Our goal with you is a contagious classroom full of motivated students.

You have earned this badge. We have provided it in two sizes each for school administrators and teachers. We hope you’ll proudly display it on your school website or personal classroom website.

Thank you for making a TEC21 classroom a badge of honor.

Serving Him with you,

The TEC21 Facilitators
