An Issue of Connectivity | Core Connections using Twitter

Shekema Silveri:

When considering connectivity inside the classroom, it is important to begin by determining what it means to be a connected learner in the 21st century.  Specifically, each of us (adults included) must ask ourselves the following questions: What are the benefits of connecting with others? What opportunity costs are associated with becoming/remaining connected? How do we successfully determine which communities to which we should connect/ belong? – See more at: http://blog.successatthecore.com/an-issue-of-connectivity/#sthash.kkv4qbcn.dpuf 

Dennis T OConnor‘s insight:

Shekema Silveri is a Milken National Educator (GA `11, LMC Fellow `12) creating classroom opportunites that have won her national recognition. 


As a MIlken National Educator myself (NV ’95) I feel proud when I see other teachers involved with the MFF stepping up with technology.
