#EdCampOnline Experience 10-26-13 #ce13

Anytime, Anywhere Learning #CE13

The Web20Classroom

The world (and learning) at your fingertips. The idea is to help more educators look beyond the walls of the classroom and look to the brilliance of others to learn from and learn with. Want to learn more? In the spirit of CEM I wanted to highlight just a few of the free, learning opportunities happening. Some lasting only small amounts of time so you really can learn anywhere, any time. Runs online Oct 18-19. Can''t get to an Edcamp F2F?

By far the most prevalent issue I see in schools struggling with their technology integration and implementation is the lack of a collective vision for how digital learning tools will be used to enhance learning.
