Happy Friday, everyone! This year was my first adventure with educational blogging. I know it has been a learning experience for me, but it has also been so helpful. It has made me really look at what teachers are doing in their classrooms, what they want, new opportunities for them, and a way to help them.
I am going to add content to my Website Collections and Resources this summer. At first I was not going to post at all, but I have changed my mind! At this point, this is my plan for posting:
Mondays: Parents. These blogs will still happen through the summer. They may be short and sweet, but they will happen.
Tuesday: Google Tip Tuesday. With our change over to gmail and teachers having to regularly login to Google, I feel it is important to keep this going. Many of these posts will focus on gmail because we are switching from our platform with GroupWise to Gmail. My teachers need some direction on moving contacts, organizing emails, etc.
Wednesday: Web 2.0 tools. I am changing this from Website to Web 2.0. This is to partially prepare for my conference presentation in July. Also, these are easy to incorporate into everyday teaching. These are usually easy to explore and don't take much time to learn. Meaning that during the summer, teachers can learn something new in a quick time period!
Thursday and Friday: I am leaving these days open. I am going to check in with the professional books I am reading on one of these days. Because I am finishing up my Masters in June and July and teaching summer school through June, I don't want to commit to too many days of posting.
What am I reading this summer? Digital Leadership by Eric Sheninger, Teach Like a Pirate by Dave Burgess, and 50 Things You Can Do With Google Classroom by Alice Keeler. Anyone interested in a book study on any of these books? Or discussing when we are done? Let me know! I would love to have a reading buddy!
