Looking Ahead and Making Plans - September 24, 2017



LID TEAM UPDATE
Now that school is in full swing and the mad September dash is (almost) to a close, consider reaching out to your LID Director and brainstorming together! Do you wonder how virtual reality could improve your students' experience? Ask! Have you heard about a tool, but you've never had the time to learn it, and you think it might work to deepen your students' understanding? Ask! You can even just reach out and say, "Hey! Got any ideas for my class?" and we can help!

FINAL THOUGHTS
I'm always on the lookout for small, bite-sized ways that educators can stay energized and ready to take on new challenges (because there are always new challenges). I'd encourage you to take a look at#onesmallthing. You don't need a Twitter account to search, and the ideas and hope that this particular hashtag provides is just that right-bite thing to make you think everyday - what's going to be my #onesmallthing?
