LS Parent Coffee with Vicki

Game Changers: Digital Tools that have Transformed the Teaching and Learning Experience

Teachers at Catlin use a variety of different digital tools to support learning in the classroom everyday. Some applications have dramatically transformed the teaching and learning for everyone. On April 6th we held a Parent Coffee in the LS library to provide parents an opportunity to hear about a few of these powerful tools and try them out on the 4th grade iPads with student helpers guiding the way.
