Getting Connected

Digitally…Socially…Spiritually

 Devotion

1 Corinthians 12:4-11(ESV)

4 Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; 5 and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; 6 and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. 7 To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.

 

You are a leader, a teacher. What does this tell you?

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
