Summer Learning Opportunities

This is borrowed from a post at Dangerously Irrelevant. These look like good ideas for students to try out over the summer…..and come to think of it, maybe staff could try some of these out just for kicks (you just might find an idea you can use next year!)

Here are some summer digital learning opportunities:

Discover the fun of geocaching.
Use a digital camcorder and YouTube to make a commercial for your city.
Use the WorldWide Telescope or Stellarium to find the view from your home. Then go outside at night to locate the sky features shown by the software.
Get involved with a project at TakingITGlobal.
Use Google Earth to make an annotated map of your summer trip.
Research a topic and create an article on Wikipedia.
Visit your grandparents or a nursing home or the local VFW chapter. Use a digital voice recorder to capture folks’ memories of a specific time period or event in history. Post as a series of podcasts.
Check out the pictures of your hometown on Flickr. Use a digital camera to add local landmarks that are missing.

  1. Dave, thanks for spreading the word on these. The summer learning tips from everyone have been a lot of fun. It would be cool for your school/district to make its own list next year!
