Finding the Good Stuff: Identifying Quality Games, Websites, and Apps for Learning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Educators must sift through a sea of digital media to determine what apps, websites, and games are of high quality for student learning. In this session, join Common Sense Media to learn about Graphite.org, their free platform that helps K-12 educators discover, use, and share the best digital learning products. Graphite offers rigorous ratings and reviews of learning products, covering a broad range of core academic subjects such as math and reading, as well as deeper learning skills such as creativity, thinking, and communication. Products are aligned to Common Core Standards. Participants will learn how to identify quality digital learning products, see curated recommended lists, and submit their own reviews. Graphite is a great resource to partner with your integration of Google Apps.
