The Teaching with Ed Tech page is designed to support teachers around best practices for using digital tools and resources during instruction. These resources will help teachers reflect and choose the most appropriate digital tools that align with learning outcomes and student needs.
You can access the Digital Resource Toolbox to explore the complete list of BCPS approved licensed digital content and instructional tools. Each tool page contains videos and/or resource documents providing instructions for set-up, use, and student accessibility.
