We live in a world that is connected....Twitter, Facebook, Skype, Symbaloo, LinkedIn, Blogger...the list goes on and on.  And it isn't just us as educators....it is our young people too.  In this workshop, Sara Wilkie, Roy McCloud and Darren Kuropatwa will teach you how to get connected on various social media platforms, bookmarking websites, and teleconferencing websites.  They will share their own stories about getting connected and how they crafted brands for their learning spaces, schools and themselves.  This dynamic team will help you do the same as they walk through step-by-step directions with each platform and resource.  You will leave armed with the tools and confidence you need to be a connected educator and learner too.
