Introducing #TheEduCal 2.0 - New and Improved for 2017

#TheEduCal Friends,

If you are reading this, then hopefully you've already experience the new and improved #TheEduCal. On Tuesday, January 10, we relaunched with a brand new, mobile-friendly site and interface. We're writing now to share more about the update and our plans for the year with you, our readers and supporters.

In addition to a full facelift for #TheEduCal on the new Google Sites, some of our updates include:
  • Improved programming and automation for all site features and social media promotion 
  • Curating event hashtags and sponsoring organizations--special pages will be created on our site for organizations to promote and share their events through #TheEduCal 
  • A new and improved reminder system for e-mail updates for new events in your area, calls for proposals, and blog posts.

#TheEduCal is new and improved for 2017 and we need your help in reaching educators everywhere. We believe that we need to talk more about professional learning and help share learning everywhere--and that’s where you come in.

Please continue to add to the calendar and to share on social media with #TheEduCal hashtag and by tagging @TheEduCal. You can also follow us on our brand new Facebook Page. Most importantly, continue to find and share your events so we can all learn and grow together.

We hope to continue to raise awareness of the site and reach new audiences with your help, and will soon be expanding to Facebook and other platforms, too. We are also excited to have welcomed a new wave of Calendar Ambassadors to our team.

#TheEduCal Blog will also receive a renewed focus and we want to help tell your stories. We would love your contributions for posts that share conference experiences and other stories of positivity and growth in education. Please consider sharing your story here.

Finally, with our relaunch we are proud to announce our new sponsor, Participate. Participate is a great site that promotes continuous learning for educators through collections, chats, and courses that empower educators. We are very excited about this partnership and welcome future sponsorship or promotional relationships.

Share #TheEduCal with your friends, with your teachers, with your #PLN, and with the world. Add, share, find, and learn together. If you have any questions or feedback, or would like to contribute in any way, please let us know.

Adam and Dani
