A few more suggestions for the teacher wanting to learn technology this summer taken from EducationalWorld, http://www.educationworld.com/a_tech/tech/tech219.shtml , include:
- Set one technology goal this summer and focus your efforts on it. (Moxley) (Office 365?)
- Read teachers' blogs and perhaps use a free program such as Blogmeister to create your own. (Rutledge)
- Join a user group such as like EdTech, or an online community such as TappedIn. (Wagner)
Finally, don't forget to take some time to relax and let your brain recharge! As Judy Rutledge notes, "Sometimes it is in the relaxed state that the best ideas pop in, and summertime gives teachers the renewed energy to tackle those great ideas."
Enjoy your summer!
