Digital Resource Toolbox

Using Digital Tools to Engage Students and Enhance Learning

An index of frequently used digital tools can be found here on The Innovation HUB. Click on any tool icon below for support resources including a product overview and ideas for use. For resources and support specific to curriculum content, please visit the appropriate Schoology Curriculum Group. Additional approved software can also be found on the BCPS Apps Portal. BCPS users can access the Apps Portal through the BCPS Links folder in their bookmarks bar when logged in to the Chrome browser or through their Office 365 account. This video will show you how.

BCPS defines software as a set of directions, data, or programs used to operate devices and execute specific tasks. Software is a generic term used to refer to Web-based or installed applications, extensions, and scripts. All software used in BCPS must be reviewed and approved centrally prior to its use. Schools and staff are not permitted to independently acquire software. Once approved, the application will be visible on The Innovation HUB and/or the Apps Portal.
