As we move forward as educators, we must embrace the “new normal” that has presented itself in the 2019/20 school year. Next year, we must be prepared to offer optimal teaching practices both in the classroom and remotely. In this two-week workshop, we will evaluate four learning tools and look at ideas of how they can be applied in a classroom or distance learning setting.
