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.
