Summer Plans

I love my time off in the summer.  Who wouldn't?  I love baseball, and camping, and baseball, and gardening, and baseball, and reading, and baseball, and cleaning, and baseball, and time with family, and did I mention baseball?  Yes, we consume a lot of baseball in the summer!

However, I do not like being idle and simply have to keep myself busy, so I spend a lot of time during the summer on Professional Development. 

Daily Tekk is a blog that I follow which recently posted 100 Tech Tools for Teachers and Students.  As I browse over the list, I recognize a few of the listed tools, but many are unknown to me.  I just don't have time to go over such a long list during the school year.  My solution?  Save it to my Delicious account and tag it Summer 2012!  I can't wait to dive into this long list and discover new ways to integrate technology into my teaching or learning.  

Are you up for a summer challenge also?  It can take some time to browse lists like this one.  I sometimes feel my blood pressure rising when I see the number 100 followed by tools, but it won't stop me from checking them out.

If you need a collection of tools and sites to check out this summer, here is my Summer 2012 stack on Delicious.  Take it slow and don't get overwhelmed.  If this isn't for you, no worries, you know many of these great tools will be coming to you in blog posts from me next school year.

Good luck if you choose to tackle a collection of web 2.0 tools this summer.
