Bonny Eagle has partnered with MLTI to host workshops from Common Sense Media on April 15th, which is a late arrival day. We will be hosting them at the technology office.

    • evaluate the learning potential of these tools; 
    • curate tools into useful collections; 
    • innovate by reimagining lessons to seamlessly weave in technology using a framework called App Flows; 
    • and collaborate by sharing best practices with other teachers on how you’re using digital tools in your classroom. 
    Learn how you can achieve these five skill with Graphite, a free service by Common Sense Media. In a hands-on session, you’ll practice these important skills and reflect on how they can help you integrate technology into your curriculum.
