By now, most educators and students have made it to holiday break and through the frenzy of Christmas/Kwansaa/Hanukkah.
Many folks are considering Resolutions for 2019… what are your EdTech resolutions?
Here are a some ideas from popular blogs:

It’s time to look ahead and set some resolution goals. I’ll share my resolution goals next week. I’m keeping in mind the words of Heather Wolpert-Gawron, “Making resolutions is really about recalibrating our attempts to be the best teachers we can be.”

Brainstorm STEAM integration for use by Educators:
Develop engaging PD activities: One possibility: every teacher to our new breakoutedu.com escape room kit we recently purchased.

All teachers need to experience the kit and see how easy it is to set up and how much the students love it.

Be more responsible with my screen time
Inclusivity for all teachers whether they are as Heather Wolpert-Gawron describes, tech-tentative teacher or a tech-savvy one
