Resources for Digital Classroom

“Digital Classroom” is a 2-day workshop guiding teachers through the step-by-step process of creating content-based digital projects to enhance learning and college and career readiness.  Teachers work in their actual content area to model and create a project they can take directly into their classroom.  The Content-Based Digital Project chart shows the model for creating these student-learning projects.
