Summer Ideas and Information

12 Jun

Good morning!

I trust you are having a great start to your summer vacations.  This is likely one of those favorite times of the year for an educator.  For many, it is a slower pace with a chance to get some needed rest.

While you are surfing the Internet between the waves at the beach, check out some of these sites. (Hopefully, you aren’t facing waves like this!)

Edueto is a free site for making online exercises.  You can create multiple choice quizzes, matching exercises, writing samples, sort of groups, and much more.  Here is a short YouTube video explaining a little about Edueto.

The next link takes you directly to the Edueto site.

Are you using Social Media?  You know your students are even if you are not.  Check out this quick video of Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks.  He discusses “The Big Mistake You Don’t Know You’re Making on Social Media.”  Please watch and share with students.

Technology instructors, are you becoming obsolete in your speech in the classroom?  Are you using endangered words technically?  Check out this graphic.

Do you have students who are rude or obnoxious at times?  Sure you do!  We all have seen them in and out of the classroom.  Look at this lesson idea to share at the beginning of school.  See if the Toothpaste Squirt Lesson is an “activity” you might wish to try.

It is still the early part of summer break.  However, do you need inspiration already to prepare for return to the classroom?  If so, check out this link.

Speaking of inspiration, prepare to attend the MS ACTE conference.  It will be July 29 – 31, 2015, at the Jackson Convention Center.  Pre-registration is open now.  Our guest speaker for Wednesday will be Jasmine Murray, reigning Miss Mississippi.  Here is the link for the more information and how to register.

Should you be in need of professional learning for the fall, here is the link with the dates of upcoming sessions.  Please note start dates.  Registration will end approximately a week before the course begins.

Lastly, keep in mind we at the RCU are happy to help you with your educational needs – curriculum, assessment, professional learning, or Canvas.  Please send all requests for assistance to the Help Desk.  The Help Desk may be reached by calling 662-325-2510 or by emailing helpdesk@rcu.msstate.edu.

Have a great weekend!
