The creativity and accessibility of online tools and apps is stimulating, invigorating and downright addictive. The choices can sometimes be overwhelming!
During the past couple of months, we've been working with teachers in our online Next Steps with Project GLAD® Acceleration Community to brainstorm simple ways of connecting the apps you're already using for distance learning with the Project GLAD® strategies you know and love.
We’d like to share some of the ideas for apps other teachers use.
Have fun with this!
Perhaps you have other ideas and suggestions - let us know! We love to grow with you!
