Upcoming NJEA Events
The NJEA Early Career Member Network is sponsoring a Twitter Chat and a Bowling Event in February.
- Twitter Chat: Feb. 1, 2016. Join us for our first #NJEAChat. The topic will be your profession, your future. Tweet with your colleagues from across the state on your best practices and share your vision for the future of public education. Learn more at njea.org/earlycareermembers.
- Bowling Event: February 19, 2016, at Colonial Bowling and Entertainment in Lawrenceville, NJ. Join us for a night of bowling, courtesy of the NJEA Early Career Member Network. Buffet dinner and two complimentary drinks will be provided. Just like other networking events, connect with your colleagues from across the state. No agendas. No speeches. Learn more and RSVP at njea.org/earlycareermembers.
As we settle into the second half of the school year, it's a great time to be innovative with your students. One of the best ways to be creative and exciting with your students is to teach them the value of connecting with others and collaborating on digital projects. One potential project might involve video conferencing with another class. There are several great applications available for platforms of all kinds to help your students become safe, digital citizens.
