  • Monitor students to see if they are watching your videos, how many times per section and if they're understanding the content.
  • Enable self-paced learning with interactive lessons, just add your voice and questions within the video.
  • Automatically integrates with Google Classes for upper levels. Elementary levels can use as a whole class experience.

Instructional Technology in the District

This year has been very busy and instructional technology training has been limited with the district being down an ITRT. However, we would like to introduce some programs and apps and offer training opportunities. Please contact me for training on any of the featured apps or technology standards. Mrs. Crewe has volunteered to help. She or I will contact you if you request training.
