I know that my readership takes a dip June-August each year as many educators go on vacations or take breaks during those months. Although I did not post as regularly as I meant to this summer, I did share some resources that I believe are worth repeating in case you missed them. I am going to spend this week spotlighting some of those.
When I wrote about Jennie Magiera’s ISTE 2017 Keynote earlier this summer, I was hoping that there would be an official YouTube video that I could share with you by the time the new school year began. However, that doesn’t appear to be the case. So, I will refer you back to the Periscope I mentioned in my first post (Jennie’s portion begins at about the 25 minute mark).
Jennie spoke at ISTE in June when I still hadn’t had time to relax from the previous school year – yet I left her presentation wishing that I start my new school year right away. I promised myself that I would watch her speech again in August to be sure that I would be energized when I return to work.
If you are interested in re-kindling the magic that inspires teachers to take their students on adventures, then you should watch Jennie Magiera.
