October's Monthly Focus

This month the Ready 1:1 Monthly Skill Focus is Integrating Digital Resources. The ISTE Standards for Students describe students as Knowledge Constructors who can use technology (like iPads) to critically curate a variety of resources to produce creative artifacts and make meaningful learning experiences for themselves and others. Students already have access to a plethora of great digital resources via the Self Service app preloaded on their iPads and this month I will highlight some of them.
