Ahh, summer! It’s perfect for the pool, barbecues, and upskilling! What’s upskilling, you may ask? It’s building knowledge and skills to take your practice to the next level. During the school year, teachers are often too busy to try that cool new tech tool, learn about the latest research in a content area, or revamp planning, assessment, or classroom management processes. You likely have a few skills in mind that you’ve been meaning to develop. Why not squeeze in some learning over the summer so you can start the school year energized and ready to dive in?!
Click on the interactive presentation below to explore some of our favorite resources for upskilling.
