"As of now there are about 20 books in the Corwin Connected Educator Series, a seemingly ever-growing set of titles masterminded by Peter DeWitt and Corwin Press.Each book is short enough to be read in one sitting, which makes the collection ideal for book studies and professional development, both during the summer and throughout the school year. Also, each paperback is authored by one or two educators who speak (and blog, tweet, etc.) with a credible voice in the world of connected education. Some of the topics include:




  • Flipped leadership




  • Tools for connecting educators, parents, and communities




  • Blogging for educators




  • Best practices for establishing a makerspace




  • Tools to connect and empower teachers


Finally, all of the authors are active on social media, and they regularly present at local conferences, which helps in bringing to life the contents of these books."
