Online Learning Tools

To support additional at-home learning opportunities, we have compiled a list of online resources that will provide students with practice using instructional digital tools.

This does not replace direct teacher instruction but rather reinforces skills that either are already taught in the classroom or have been identified as focus areas. These Digital Tools provide a number of ways students can stay connected to their learning by:

  • Reviewing materials and topics taught earlier this year
  • Previewing future topics
  • Exploring additional topics and materials of interest

Students with special needs have a great ally in technology. Google Chrome offers many extensions for accessibility that can assist in a variety of areas; including, text to speech, speech to text, readability, reading comprehension, focus, and navigation.

We will continue to develop and add to these resources.
