Topic 5: Being a Connected Educator
Katherine Ehle

I completely see your perspective. It makes sense and I get it — but I don’t agree. Yep, call me old, but I am only 32 and my 14 year old students LOVE seeing themselves online. We live in a world that you can truly find out anything about anyone… so why don’t we embrace that? Let’s teach the kids how to be connected. Let’s show them that we, as teachers, are always learning. Let’s connect with the kids, and all of those amazing teachers on our own time, rather than the 20 minutes we have to sit down for lunch. Maybe it isn’t for you, that is fine, but don’t hate it…there is a lot of good that can come from it!
