"It requires permissions, I expect it is district specific. No problem, the front page loaded up fine it was just the linked vocab docs, which are probably stored within your district firewall.  :)"

"That's a good point -- I really didn't see a lot of VR and AR exhibited at ASTE this year. There has been more in the past. That's too bad, because, as you mentioned, AR and VR are being used elsewhere in our world, and we need to…"

"The littles have done really well!  Generally we pair them with an older student, fourth and above, and they work really well together.  I think they could possibly need more guidance if they were in k/1 pairs.  It is hard to say, as…"

Teachers are remote from sites, although we have been discussing having teachers make regular onsite visits to students, especially at the beginning of each semester to…See More
