Engaging all learners in STEM

During the rapid move to remote learning, many hardworking educators were stretched to their limits.

Juggling compliance with schools and state requirements, and  remodeling their teaching strategies and classroom activities to ensure students kept on track.

Now that we’ve had some time to reflect on the ongoing shift in learning environments, it’s time to move beyond compliance and take a look at how to design high quality digital math and STEM instruction that engages and supports diverse learners.
