In the last blog we looked at three digital leaders that should be added to your PLN and three Twitter chats to consider. This week we are exploring a website that provides a one stop digital education anthology with Canadian content. The Canadian Education Association (CEA) website provides a one stop resource for articles, videos, Canadian programs and initiatives all with the support of an e-newsletter and a blog written by educators from across Canada. I encourage you to take some time to review the site and I am sure you will find a few resources that you will add to your PLN.
Of particular interest to me as I was exploring the development of my own PLN was the blog post by Max Cooke, CEA Director of Communications. In his post, Twitter and Canadian Educators, he explores the use of Twitter through a few lenses, one being that of a critical practitioner. He explores how Twitter is often perceived as he unveils the inherent value in connected leading and learning. It is a great read that would undoubtedly answer some of the questions that surface as we begin to walk the digital leadership path. The added bonus is the perspective and resources that Mr. Cooke provides on Canadian educational leaders who utilize Twitter and why you should consider following them. This week we suggest you set aside some time to check out the CEA website and Mr. Cooke’s post.
