It is that time of year ... where most people head out for their summer vacation. As a child, we always took a two week excursion that would rival Chevy Chase's journey in National Lampoon's Vacation.
When I became an educator, summer was a time of renewal. While I might be ready for some time off, I am always searching for new and exciting strategies for the next school year. I am constantly searching for that new tool, strategy, or learning experience that will engage all my students.
One of my go-to sites is http://www.edutopia.org. Edutopia is a product of The George Lucas Educational Foundation. It includes articles that encompass every aspect of education. While perusing the site, I was able to find information on technology integration, student engagement, trends in education, and game-based learning. This site allows me to stay up-to-date as an educator.
While you are gearing up for the new school year, whether it begins on July 8th or August 25th, check out http://www.edutopia.org.
