There are many great networks out there that teachers are a part of. Some of them are virtual and exist in blogs, twitter chats and discussion forums, while others are face to face.  Some are structured and some are fluid and flexible. 

We know of some of these networks, but would love to shine a light on some of the ones we don't know about. Please feel free to send me an email or reply here if you would like to share a network with others as we try to help connect some of the great work that is happening across the CBE, the province and the world.

If you are working on your schools DC Plan we have GREAT news for you: MediaSmarts' Digital Citizenship resources are now available again in CORE!

LearnAlberta stopped licensing MyWorld and Passport to the Internet back in June, so the CBE has negotiated a license for these resources and put them back into CORE.  In addition we have obtained a license for a new collection of Professional Development program from MediaSmarts called the Web Awareness Workshop Series. The series deals with everything from online safety to advertising on the internet and cyber-bullying. Be sure to check it out and spread the word! http://delivr.com/2nzs8
