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.”

Try to remember to restart my computer by Kelly Bielefeld

Set a regular schedule to keep my hardware charged

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. We have a few innovative teachers who have already experimented with it, and have already seen an amazing level of engagement and thinking. All teachers need to experience the kit and see how easy it is to set up and how much the students love it.

Practice 20-20-20 to ease eye strain from too much screen time

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

Keep the Gee-Whiz factor that edTech provides

“Drop the word ‘tech.’ It’s just ‘education’ now” Mike Lawrence, CEO ofComputer Using Educators (CUE), past ISTE board member, and Director of the California Student Media Festival.
