Came across two resources I plan on taking advantage of this summer. Abbreviated as mine might be, I am COVETING the 5 weeks I have off to refresh, renew, reinvigorate my passion in what I do.
The first, this blog post by Angela Watson, (whom I feel very honored to call an IRL BFF, :)) on the books she recommends for reading over the summer. Her “Awaken” is sitting on my nightside WAITING for me to dive in with a positive mindset. Her easy to read piece and why she includes each book will help you see an immediate connection and I hope you can find a couple to take with you to the pool. ALL of these books are easy to read, none are written like a…text book. Cough cough…
Second, through Zite (which I will be blogging about soon!) I cam across this Edudemic article that gives you some summer online learning options. It’s a new platform called Modern Lessons and has a ton of free online courses from learning the basics of Twitter to an advanced course on iPads in education.
Whatever you choose to do this summer, come back and share, especially if you read any of these books, or take a course!
