This post is to give you a little more insight into how digital learning will look over the next couple weeks. If you have any questions, please either ask via Remind or feel free to email me.
We appreciate your patience as we transition to digital learning during the upcoming weeks. Please check Google Classroom daily for assignments and information, and feel free to email me any time with questions or concerns. Please note there are also multiple links and lots of information you can access on my page on the McDonough website.
The tech tools you will need are:
Software: Study Island, HMH Resources, Active Classroom, Google Drawing, Gimkit, Flocabulary (can be accessed on the launch pad) and Quizizz online (can be accessed in Google Classroom)
