Right now I am one of many educators who is not attending ISTE 2015 (International Society for Technology in Education). I will admit that I do feel a little left out but I am enjoying following the action on Twitter, Instagram and Google+. It has also got me thinking about what I will be learning this summer so I thought I would share some less obvious PD gems available.
CueRockstar Teacher Camp Resources: It always surprises me that people do not realize that all of the resources from each camp are freely available for any and all to see, use, and learn from. Even the resources from past camps are available. Below I have a short screencast showing how to easily access these resources. There are so many that I will be learning well into the fall. The beauty is I get to pick and choose which resources and when.
Here are some examples of the types of resources that you will find:
Adina Sullivan's Day 3 Session Thinglink (CueRockstar LaJolla): I need to learn how to help teachers integrate more project based learning and this will help!
I am also all about learning how to make, edit, etc... videos for myself and my students. Doug Robertson's session from the Chico camp - Adventures in You Tubery - is not only useful information but an example of how to use a Google Site to share information.
Finally, I love how Jen Roberts organizes her resources on a Google Doc (a great example to use with you students whether they are kiddos or adults! Writing for Technical Subjects - Day 2 of LaJolla camp
Just a quick post to get you started on some free and meaningful PD this summer.
