Google Science Fair is Back
Teachers play a huge role in encouraging students to share their ideas, big or small. Google Science Fair is back, and we have created a full library of teaching materials and exercises focused on the problem-solving process to get the ideas flowing. These materials have received an ISTE Seal of Alignment for Readiness, and are flexible enough to apply to virtually any subject or teaching style. Submissions will open in September, but you can now find classroom materials here.
National AfterSchool Toolkit Launch
While a majority of teachers increasingly assign homework that requires the internet, millions of students—primarily those from low-income and rural communities—don’t have access at home. This is known as ‘the homework gap’ and it’s causing too many students to fall behind. To help close this gap, the National AfterSchool Association, with support from Google, has created a free, online Afterschool Tech Toolkit that guides afterschool professionals through the effective integration of tech into their programs. The toolkit covers topics like how to identify technology needs, how to creatively gain access to devices and connectivity, and how to train afterschool staff. Become a digital learning champion by checking out the Afterschool Technology Toolkit today!
