The educator becomes a connected educator and through sharing, is an active participant and contributor to the connected educator movement.
Being a connected educator means connecting with other teachers to exchange ideas, improve your teaching practice, and in turn, make a change in education.

The gap between what is and what could be in education is larger than it ever has been. I believe this is largely due to technology and the ability to establish global connections because of social media. Educators are more connected and more aware about education trends than any time in the history of public education.
Imagine how education could be transformed if all educators use their own personal, often passion-driven voices. The bottom line is that if any individual educator believes there are flaws in the education, that it can be done better, then s/he has the responsibility to say something. I reaching the point that I am starting to believe it is a moral imperative for educators to share what they know to be true with other educators; and with administrators, students’ families, community members, politicians . . . the larger global society.

- TeachThoughtSkills like vocabulary and foreign language speaking are right in the sweet spot of what unattended and automated–often considered the very worst kind–can do.
But it needn’t be that way. Handing a student a tablet as they practice basic skills with an app–especially one with adaptive design–is a perfectly legitimate use of edtech as far as we’re concerned, and language learning is very much a part of that.
So with that in mind are ten of the best language learning apps for 2015, updated to include those with social dynamics, like HelloTalk, recent entries like Rosetta Stone, and stalwart Duolingo.
