Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 06, 2015
Today, the Connected Educator Month (CEM) initiative has announced an exclusive global media partnership with the MindRocket Media Group, a multi-channel marketing communications company with an expertise in global thought leadership and high quality content production.
In 2012 the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Educational Technology and U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced the initiative to create a more fully globally connected, evidence-based movement that fosters collaboration and innovation to transform professional learning and effect educational change.
Connected Educator Month is now observed in October. This year, various social media channels will tag their updates and posts with #ce15.

We feel very fortunate to have such a prestigious communications group join our participating organizations in support of connected learning everywhere,” said Connected Educator Month Co-Chair Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach.
Connected Educator Month networks educators and education stakeholders through connected professional learning experiences worldwide. Its lead partners include the American Institutes for Research (AIR), Grunwald Associates, LLC, Powerful Learning Practice (PLP) and the U.S. Department of Education (USDOE).
