INFOhio Webinar Series for May 2020: Your Summer Bucket List

Author // Erica Clay Thursday, 30 April 2020

As the end of the school year approaches, our thoughts naturally turn to sandy beaches, afternoons by the pool, and fun ways to keep the learning going throughout the summer months. We know the summer of 2020 will be different for students and teachers with the absence of summer camps, play dates, and face-to-face professional development or workshops. How can you maintain learning with engaging activities that will foster student and teacher creativity while keeping things simple?

With INFOhio, the learning never stops! We've got remote learning solutions that are guaranteed to keep summer learning simple, structured, and supported. Throughout the month of May, join INFOhio for 30 minutes each Wednesday at noon to add INFOhio resources, tools, and professional development to your summer bucket list.

All webinars in this series will be recorded and links will be posted. Questions about this webinar series? Contact us at support.infohio.org.

Stop the Summer Slide! Digital Content for Your Summer Reading Bucket List

What can teachers do to stop the Summer Slide and help students come back to school ready to learn in the fall? Ohio's students can use INFOhio's learning resources all year long, including during the summer months. Send your students sailing into the summer with eBooks, articles from popular children's magazines, and fact-filled encyclopedias that will help them build their reading skills. Discuss ways to motivate kids by creating a summer reading challenge or gamifying the learning. Join Erica Clay, INFOhio Instructional Team Specialist, to learn more about INFOhio’s literacy resources and to share your own strategies for supporting student summer reading.

Dive into Summer with Digital Reading for Teachers

As we start the final weeks of this school year, many teachers will experience a spectrum of emotions, from sadness and loss to relief that this very different and stressful school year is over. Many educators will also begin to think about the challenges for the start of the 20-21 school year and wonder what they can do to further their efficacy, effort, and influence in the flipped, remote, or staggered classroom for the next school year. Find out how you can personalize the learning you need to get ready for the new school year using INFOhio’s professional databases. Join Emily Rozmus, INFOhio Instructional Team Specialist, to learn more about 15 For Educators and how to turn it into your summer reading. To watch the recording, see the webinar page.
