Welcome to our Special CanAm ISTE EdTech Report, where we explore the latest in innovations and research in the K12 & Higher Education space as we prepare for the Biggest EdTech event of the year as media partners>>ISTELive, June 26-29, New Orleans. It's not too late to register!
As we come down to the final weeks, or days of school, let's focus on finishing strong! We are ramping up, to relax and recharge for the summer. The resumption of in-class learning and in-person professional learning makes it seem like we're drinking from a firehouse for sure. I'm constantly reminding myself not to stress over the things we can't control. And, yes, getting a good dose of daily exercise can be easier said than done. I'm happy with three fitness workouts a week to help me cope with the daily grind.
Exciting times ahead this month as we are hosting many events and activities as highlighted in this report! We honour and celebrate 2SLGTBQIA+ (Pride Month), Italian Heritage Month, and National Indigenous History Month. There are lots of great resources for teachers to engage their students in new and innovative ways infusing themes of the month.
