Where did the summer go? It has been a gorgeous summer in Maine! Finally- sunshine, warm weather…and I have to work.
Regardless, I managed to take some vacation time, camped, went to the beach, and spent time with my family on my Dad’s boat. Taking time away from the hub-bub of everyday life is important once in a while-and that includes taking a break from technology.
Taking a moment to unplug and reconnect with yourself is important. Balancing how and when technology should be used with your students is important as well. Our learners come hard wired and ready to engage in multi-media, multi-senosory experiences. Providing students with engaging content is challenging at times. However, if we use the tools we’re given wisely, and when our students need them, we will be most successful.
There is a lot of exciting things that will be happening this year in terms of instructional and educational technology for us. Stay tuned for these developments!
Welcome back to school!
