"Bored Teacher" Summer Learning Series: Taking Time to Learn While Your Students Are Away

I know, I know. I feel it, too.  The students are away and our lives have halted to a dull roar while we eagerly await their return in fall. What is a bored teacher to do in summer?

In this summer's "Bored Teacher" series, we are going to offer some ideas for tools to explore, investigate, and play with while you have some time to do so.  We are going to focus on tools that will be available in your classroom in fall (or shortly thereafter if you are not yet a Waukesha One school), and hopefully we will point you to helpful resources to aid you as you explore from the comfort of home, the cabin, a beach, or, most likely, your classroom!

While it won't fill the void your students have left in your heart as they scurried out the door for summer break, taking time to learn to use these new tools in meaningful ways may be just the cure needed as you plan and prepare for their return.

Keep tuning in to our posts each week for the "Bored Teacher" Summer Learning Series.  We would also love if you could share it out with your colleagues who may not yet be tuned into our SDW Tech Integration Now blog.
