When I was a classroom teacher I looked forward to summer break. I was able to close out one school year, leave myself a ton of reminders for the start of the next and was ready to turn my mind and body to other pursuits. I could come back fresh, excited and eager to dive right in. I am now a instructional technology specialist and though my school year officially ends and I will soon be on summer break my work does not. Summer is when all the changes occur.
This year the are some really large changes with Apple (managed IDs and Apple School Manager). Technology based tools and services are never static and it takes time to plan and implement the changes that are never ending. This is the time of year I feel nostalgia for the ‘good old days’ back in the classroom packing up my year and having some closure.
