As we look at learning and education a bit differently now, we have developed creative and meaningful ways to keep students connected to learning, reading, opportunities and each other. Join Shannon McClintock Miller for this session as she shares how she has done this within her district throughout the school year, and throughout their remote learning experiences. Shannon will share several different digital tools and apps, resources, places to find connections, and lots of tips for making this happen for your students too. You will leave filled with ideas, a toolbox of resources and a whole lot of inspiration!
