Good episode? Give it some love!
  • What tools are out there that I can use with my students if I need to teach online?

  • How am I going to help my students that need modifications or accommodations?

  • Who can show me how to use these resources?

  • Are these tools appropriate for different grade and age levels? What about ability levels?

These are some of the questions being asked by many educators across the world because of COVID-19 potentially impacting instruction due to school closures. In this podcast, I share over 50+ resources that I have used in my K-12 classrooms as well as in teaching graduate students in Educational Technology using online learning.
