Posted by Travis Rink on Wed, May 27, 2015
As the last bell rings on the last day of school, excitement about the summer break kicks in for students and teachers alike. It may seem like only yesterday that you were greeting a new class of eager students, and now the school year has ended. How can you make the most of your summer?

Helping You Rejuvenate and Retool in the Summer Months Ahead

Training with Travis Summer Training OptionsFor educators, the summer break is a time to relax, rejuvenate, and retool. You finally have the time to reflect on what went well, what needs to be improved, and how you might alter things to better accommodate curriculum or class changes. But for many, it’s a short-lived break from reality before the professional side of your chosen career path kicks in once again.

Does it seem like every year there’s some new initiative you are asked to get behind and implement in your classroom to help students achieve? Is the introduction of new classroom technology prominent in the mix of upcoming expectations that you have to contend with – or the pressure to better integrate in your teaching the technology tools your school already has?

When it comes to educational technology products, we have you covered. Whether you are new to classroom technology, a seasoned veteran, or just need some refreshing, our no-cost training options can help you realize the power of your ed tech tools and discover how transformational they can be for you and your students. Take a look at the following options.

We offer a wide range of learning resources that are available when you are.
