Our first Digital Learning Showcase is now available. Congratulations to Kristin Jarrell for being selected to represent MSET this month in our Showcase for her work with personalized learning. For details visit the Digital Learning Showcase section on our website.
MSET is highlighting examples of great teaching, leading, and learning happening around the state of Maryland. Each month a different theme is highlighted on Facebook and Twitter. We are asking our members to spotlight great things happening in their districts.
If your submission is selected, you will be featured on our website, Facebook page/group, and on Twitter. This month we are featuring our connected educators. Share with us how you use social media tools to help you grow as a professional or how you use them with students to break down traditional classroom walls.
