Learning Assets: Quick, Digital Tools for the Classroom

What is a Learning Asset?
A learning Asset is a strategy a teacher chooses to actively engage students in learning a concept or skill using a digital tool/resource.

Learning Assets are available on the ALEX website and are educator created and then approved by the ALEX team.

You can search the Learning Asset database by subject, grade level, and goal/objective/focus. See below for the link.
