About the Community of Expertise in Educational Technology (CEET).
The Community of Expertise in Educational Technologies (CEET) is an online community of practice fostering expertise in the use of educational technologies in K-12 education. CEET aggregates information and resources on how existing and emerging educational technologies can support instructional practice and improve student engagement, satisfaction, and achievement. CEET supports BC educators in understanding and using these emerging educational technologies.
Although created and funded by the British Columbia Ministry of Education, CEET belongs to its members. It is the members who give the community its life and value, and they who will decide its direction and future.
CEET was launched in pilot form in the Fall of 2008, as a place where a core group of distributed learning teacher mentors would help novices learn how to use the new Web 2.0 tools in their online teaching practice. Although this did happen in a limited way, CEET quickly grew in unforeseen directions and became a launch-point for a wide range of professional learning activities for all teachers.
A central hub, or launch page for CEET (ceet.ca), directs members to the rapidly expanding components of the community. These include the main community of practice site on the Ning platform (CEET Ning), a Twitter feed (CEET Twitter), and a Moodle server (for CEET Meets) hosted by LearnNowBC.
