Literacy Stations

Who knew it would be this way?

In times like this, when classrooms are practicing social distancing, and many schools are virtual, digital resources and training are needed now more than ever.  I started creating the Digital Literacy Stations membership for classrooms pre-Covid.

This program has a limited membership.

Developed to work along with the platforms you use every day
