Three top tools for Remote Teaching and Learning


Check out how MARIA LASKARIS uses BOOK CREATOR with her students!

Book Creator assists teachers from all disciplines with student presentations. This tool allows students to easily demonstrate and share knowledge while highlighting skills and creativity through book design. This multimedia app allows input of text, drawings, images, narrations and videos. Completed books can be saved as ePub files and uploaded to Google Classroom, or published with a link that is available to share. In the end, students have a living document in a library that they can be proud of!

Do you have a "best practice" or something "techy" that you would like to share?

Send me an email with your "best practices" content so that I can add it to the "Peeking into a Remote Classroom" area of this newsletter. Or, maybe you have a tech idea, timely article or interesting website that you would like to share. Contributions are always welcome!
