One of my favorite things about last week was seeing the visit of an author to our elementary schools. These connections foster energy and excitement around learning that is hard to replicate without these types of moments. Hundreds of opportunities like author visits, classroom collaborations, and virtual field trips are available on the Connected Classrooms Community. In addition, tons of resources and opportunities are shared daily at two Twitter hashtags that feature Affton teachers, #afftonlearns and #moedchat. You don't have to have a Twitter account to share in these resource rich links. Take a moment to explore during Connected Educators Month.
