The Connected Educator Book Study

Join us for a new FDLRS Professional Development Opportunity

We are thrilled to announce our newest book study for educators.

The Connected Educator- Learning and Leading in a Digital Age, written by Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach and Lani Ritter Hall is a new book that will guide us through the emerging technologies we need to access in order to be relevant to our students.

This is a ten week course that is worth twenty in-service points for participants. The target audience is all educators interested in being part of a connected learning environment. This course will be facilitated by Alissa Plaisance and Karen Geisel. Facilitators will spend time weekly sharing feedback and supporting participants as we go through the book together.
