Finding the Right Tools

Guest blog post by Rachelle Dene Poth, Learning Ambassador

There are a tremendous amount of classroom resources available to help students learn and teachers teach. Supplemental materials can be found within course textbooks,​ an online search or by using teacher or student created resources. Through a simple online search, within seconds, teachers can locate websites, images, documents, games, videos, and other media formats. What seems like such a simple process, presents challenges for choosing the most beneficial and relevant materials that will enable students to ​learn the material​ and help teachers to assess ​student learning.

How do we face these challenges? We can start with building relationships to better understand student needs and backgrounds. Starting with relationships will enable teachers to provide learning experiences which foster each student’s opportunity for growth and learning ​in​ ways that meet their individual needs at their own pace.
