#EdTech  leaders, we’re looking for video responses that answer the question, ‘Why is a community of EdTech leaders important to you?”

We will combine the responses and share during the #UCEA conference on Nov 7th. This video can be as short, or as long as you want it to be. There is no right or wrong answer!

Record using https://www.youtube.com/my_webcam (or any device) and post your link using #edtechvid

Developing a Community of Educational Technology Leadership

This 'On Air session' will explore the development of an online community of educational technology leaders. The Google+ platform provides an excellent opportunity to analyze the development of one such community. This workshop will share data uncovered through Google’s API and via individual surveys of the community members, moderators and owners. Reports on the statistical trends in engagement will be analyzed as the community undergoes drastic changes to increase the scholarly and professional interactions.

Learning communities have been an essential component to the Internet since its inception. Increasingly, online communities are being utilized by educators, leaders and scholars from around the world as an opportunity to increase the reach of their professional learning networks. Social media networks have aided in the growth of these communities, however, the discussion is often linear and the platforms do not encourage deep engagement and sharing. The recent addition of Communities within the Google+ social media platform, however, holds the potential to reach large audiences of like-minded participants and allow deep, scholarly engagement through text, video, and the sharing of resources. This workshop will explore the strategies implemented by the owners of the EdTech Google+ Community to create a scholarly and professional global network of educational technology leaders.
