Independent Schools need to connect #caisct

The road to learning

Thank you Bill Sullivan  for his recent #caisct post:

Use the #CAISCT to Connect with other CAIS Educators

This past week, I attended “Too Many Tools, Too Little Time” hosted by the Connecticut Association of Independent Schools (CAIS).  It is a wonderful event where educators from a range of schools and subject areas come together to connect and hear a few 15-20 minute presentations on technology tools that might be of interest.  The evening includes a half-hour pre-session chat, and a break with yummy New Haven pizza, thus time to meet and greet with other educators.

What I love about this annual event is the mix of educators in attendance and presenting.  Culturally, independent schools have functioned in their own bubbles, partly due to different missions, partly due to competition.  However, we need each other in my opinion.  I love meeting other #caisct educators from schools that I might never interact…
