More tools to support a digital classroom
First and foremost the Ed Tech team would like to welcome back all staff and students to the 2020-2021 school year.
This will be a year of many firsts, and we look forward to navigating alongside each and every one of you.
With all of the unknowns, we wanted to help make your jobs a little easier.
We heard your feedback from the spring and now have even more digital tools to help make the digital classroom a better space.
Actively Learn allows you to engage students through texts (and videos) for ELA, Science, and Social Studies. Scaffolds and higher-order questions are available to support students in reading and engaging with these texts.
