Digital Resources – Frequently Asked Questions:
What will I need to assign the digital components to my students?
You will require:
❶ Access to the internet
❷ A Google Drive Account
Why should I consider purchasing this bundle instead of just the printable version?
✔The digital resources completely align with the regular units. This makes it extremely easy to meet IEP accommodations for specific students with little effort on your part.
✔ The digital resources are paperless, which is perfect if your school administrator is asking you to cut down on photocopying!
✔ The saturated, full-colour interactive slides are engaging for students.
✔ It’s easy to implement with distance learning.
✔ The two versions are companion resources. You can have most of your students using the printable versions, but your IEP or distance learning students working on the same lesson using computers or other devices.
✔ It’s just fun to use!
Can I edit this resource?
The digital versions ONLY have editable text. I have left 95% of the texts in editable form for two reasons:
➀ to ensure that students are able to use Google Read & Write with the activities.
➁ to allow teachers to edit texts and tasks when they feel it suitable for their class or to address IEP accommodations for specific students.
How do I collect student work?
Students using the digital resources will simply complete their own copies of the lessons, and turn it into your platform (ie. Google Classroom).
