As far as today’s scenario is concerned, STEM needs to play a strong role that would not only keep it exposed to women but also to students and minorities from economically weaker communities who have always been underrepresented while making way to #STEM_industries  
If experts are under the impression that men outscore women in terms of earnings, they might be taken aback on knowing that the number of women earning college degrees and higher credentials is act...

CEM: What We've Learned (CEM Staff, Theme Curators, And You)
5-6:30 PM ET What We've Learned (Personalized Learning, Innovating STEM and Literacy, 21st Century Classroom Management).  In the the first of two centrally-programmed CEM sessions, with the help of special guests, we will reflect together on the expanse of activities and learning of the month, and work with you to generate a handful of top takeaways from our month of learning (focused, in this session, on the themes of personalized Learning, innovating STEM and literacy and 21st century classroom management). We’ll also take a look at Connected Educator Month by the numbers, celebrate some 'best of show' moments, and talk about how we continue to keep the momentum going as we head into November and beyond.

Using Google Apps as a Free Learning Management System started in February 2013 and grows daily. Now at 1,573 members, we get excited about GAFE summits[1], the merger of CourseBuilder with edX[2] and the prospect of building open online learning systems which extend beyond traditional educational settings.

Connected Educator Month officially ended late on October 31 with a rollicking, highly interactive afterparty that was a great mix of substance and fun.  We were graced to have ISTE CEO Brian Lewis as our co-host (in costume!), and were surprised and very grateful when the US Department of Education's head of the Office of Educational Technology, Richard Culatta, who made this entire event possible, was able to dial in from the BETT conference in Brazil (tough connectivity!) and was with us for the entire party, even though it ended at 1 AM local time for him.  Among many other things Richard shared with us is that what we're doing collectively to support connected education is something he's consistently been able to showcase as a model for other nations at top international conferences (like BETT).  And that Secretary Duncan is already taking action on a number of things he heard in this past week's Twitter chat, setting the ultimate example of connected leadership (at the highest levels) as far as we're concerned.  

Originally we were going to include all of the above and more in a newsletter to you on Friday, including numbers, archives and next steps, plus more connected educator profiles and other content, too. But after the huge month we all had, we decided everyone, including us, needed a real day of rest.  And we still think it's time for rest today.  But it's also time for some appreciations that we expressed during our closing sessions to be expressed more widely (a little past time, actually). So without further ado, we want to say thanks, from the baseline of our real and virtual hearts, to:
The Department of Education who provided the resources and leadership that made CEM as you saw it possible
All the organizations and individuals who helped with the planning of this year's event (we hope you were pleased by how much of what you suggested we did, and know that we're still in the process of implementing more)
All the participating organizations whose events and activities made the month unforgettable and whose efforts to spread the word allowed record numbers of educators to experience it
All the thought leaders who participated in the opening sessions, in the Connected/CEM Cafe, as theme curators, in the Pinterest team, and in many other events besides, who gave us inspiration and ideas that will last for years to come
All the organizations who showed support for connected education above and beyond the call by sponsoring the many contests and challenges that were run (some still running!), and 
Above all you, the educators at all levels who participated in and partook of CEM, and did everything we all did and more.
Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.
 
The CEM Team

PS We'll be back early next week with some final numbers for the month, a few updates, and what's next for CEM.  We hope everyone has a peaceful and restful weekend.

Happening now! 
Halloween Howl CEM After Party (Co-Hosted With ISTE), October 31, 9:00pm – 11:00pm EST
ISTE logoBats, cats, monsters, and moonlight! Halloween is upon us and along with this holiday comes a delightful and dreadful event – the end of Connected Educator Month! In celebration, our closing ceremony will be a wondrous mix of chilling costumes, enchanting entertainment, great prizes, and devilish discussions. Whether you drop in for a hair-raising hello or join us for the entire 2-hour party, we hope to see YOU on Halloween! Here’s what’s in store for this petrifying party: 

9:00 – A Wicked Welcome – Meet the other ghouls and goblins who came out for this epic event, and learn what’s planned for the night ahead.

9:15 – Beastly Badge Bonanza – Go wild and release your inner badge beast! Get out your claws and make a grab for it as you collect badges that eluded you during Connected Educator Month. Make a suggestion for badge for #ce14 and earn a Badge Creator badge.

9:25 – The Scariest Thing - Hear and tell terrifying stories about the barriers that prevent connected learning. Listen to the toe-curling tales and share about your own harrowing brushes with barriers, budgets, push-back, and more. Together, let’s also talk about how to smash these beastly barriers with some proactive solutions.

9:50 – Eerie EduSlam - Keep your ears and eyes open as five of our selected educators give 3-minute talks about tools or PD ideas related to connected learning. You’re sure to be ensnared by their illuminating ideas.

10:05 – Enchanting Entertainment (by YOU!) – Fall under a spell as connected educators from all over the globe showcase their terrific, thrilling, and terrible talents. Do you sing, dance, or perform all sorts of “magic”? We need you to show us! What will be revealed in this session is not for the faint of heart. Don’t miss it! 

10:20 – Chilling, Creepy, and Cute: The Costume Contest - You wouldn’t dare come to a party on Halloween without a costume, would you? Open your eyes and ears, and revel in the spine-chilling, spirited, scary, shocking, and sweet costumes of the other party-goers. Make sure your webcam and microphone are connected so you can frighten or charm us with your unique getup for the evening.

10:45 – Weird Wondering Wizardry - Let’s collectively cackle and carve out questions about what we wonder as we wrap up Connected Educator Month. Bring your most pointy (or is that pointed?) questions and contribute to this creatively creepy discussion of wondering wizardry.

11:00 – Trick or Tweet - As we say goodnight and wander off into the mist, we’ll post our final thoughts, farewells, reflections, and favorite moments from the evening. Don’t forget to include the hashtag #ce13 in your terrible, terrifying, or touching tweets.

To attend the party, log into Blackboard Collaborate here at 9pm (or later) on October 31. See you there!
