We sometimes hear the current generation of learners described as "tech savvy," but today's digital natives are primarily "tech comfy." Teens may need to show adults how to use SnapChat, but age and experience help adults know more about how to evaluate the content on that platform and in other digital spaces.
The new year brings with it a new opportunity to try new things to support learning for all students. In this fast-paced webinar, you'll learn about ten free tech tools you can use with students across all grade levels and subject areas, and for your own personal productivity.

Ohio’s parents and educators now have access to the INFOhio Early Learning Portal. The Early Learning Portal includes links to websites and apps to help little learners ages 3-5 prepare for school and their futures.
Each resource in the Early Learning Portal supports the Ohio Early Learning Standards and helps preschool children:
- Learn letters, numbers, and basic knowledge
- Interact with other children and adults
- Engage in meaningful play
- Develop focus and problem-solving skills
Parents and educators also will find tips on appropriately integrating technology into a preschool child’s learning. Adults are encouraged to use the digital resources with children, helping them navigate the Early Learning Portal with guidance and support.
Infographics are powerful visuals that communicate information, data, or knowledge.

In Grab 'Em with Infographics! How to Make Infographics with Your Students you'll learn how using infographics in education helps students build their visual and data literacy skills.
