Technology is a buzzword in education, more so than ever before. Is it all just hype? How can it work along with traditional tutoring without replacing one-on-one attention? At School on Wheels, we have a plan to improve outcomes for homeless students in our program through the use of technology and blended learning. Learn about digital learning tools that can help you as a tutor to enhance and improve instruction for your student.
In this online workshop, we discuss new tools available to you such as assessments to identify gaps in learning, individualized lessons that give practice in these area, and access to more engaging activities.
