Summer is a huge opportunity for professional development. Dedicated teachers around the country will be spending their “free time” attending conferences, reading books, and doing anything else they can to grow as an educator.
We at Edmentum always like to tool around the bookshelves at the beginning of the summer and winter breaks to unearth the new gems that teachers might want to check out during these uninterrupted pleasure reading times. As always, beach reads are also allowed.
Technology has put vast amounts of information at students’ fingertips. But, does this mean that they effectively consume it? And where does this leave teachers? As the leading event for technology in education, ISTE 2015 is a great forum to explore these questions and gain insight into what the answers may be.
Schools across the country are in varying stages of closing out the school year. Leave a lasting impression on your students by using this time to make sure they are reflecting on their own progress and taking ownership of their academic goals.
