Top 3 Pins for Teacher Summer Projects!




Summer Vacation begins in just 7 days for me - S-E-V-E-N!  So I am thinking about what I want to focus on this summer for next year and I have decided to focus on technology!  
And that's what my pins are all about!

First up, I want to learn as much as I can about using Google apps to go digital in my classroom.  Not only will this save paper but technology is so engaging for students!  I have found that even my most difficult students enjoy using digital learning resources!

We don't have Google Classroom in my district but we do have Gmails so I know we can do just about anything Google!  I plan to do a weekly blog series about what I discover beginning Saturday, June 18th so stop back by and join me!

Next up,  I also want to look into digital portfolios.  I have heard about See Saw and even signed up but have yet to figure it all out.  I'm excited for what kids could do with this!  I think this will really motivate students to be invested in their learning because there's a place for it to be displayed that isn't limited to school.

Finally, I would be remiss if I didn't look at options to engage parents.  Did you know you could send a classroom newsletter using Google Docs?  Me either!  

All of this technology "stuff" excites me and I think it will excite my students too!

Check out my Pinterest board where I have been collecting pins for this summer project and then check out some other great pins for June:

    1. I am on a similar mission this summer to do more with Google Classroom and to look into the See Saw app to use for digital portfolios for student led conferences. I look forward to reading your blog posts about your digital learning journey.
