PD in your PJ's! Join me for #RSCON4!



Do you like to learn in the comfort of your own home, sitting in your pj's with a variety of topics at your choosing? A free 3 day virtual conference, The Reform Symposium, #RSCON4 will be held October 11th to 13th in conjunction with Connected Educator Month. Don't miss this opportunity to learn with a global audience of passionate educators!

Here are my top 5 reasons for being a part of RSCON4 as a presenter, volunteer co-moderator, and participant: 

1) There are hundreds of sessions on a wide variety of topics, all focused on .. yep, you got it: students!
2) The conference is global: when you join a session, you have an opportunity to chat with inspiring educators from all around the world! You can make connections that might lead to future collaboration.
3) This PD opportunity is differentiated learning at its finest: you can tune in when you want, watch later as an archive, and walk out if it's going too slow, too fast, or it's just not what you need. You can even chat with others as you're learning without disturbing anyone. I love this format as I often learn as much from the other attendees as I do the presenter.
4) The event is both free and volunteer driven: no one has an agenda to sell me a product, pitch a tool, or convince me to spend money!
5) When I hang out with inspiring people, I am re-energized to do the work that is tough but so rewarding.

Please join the conversation! I look forward to seeing you there!
