In this session we will show teachers how to incorporate learning opportunities through their already created material and learning activities. Participants will see how to integrate Buncee, Genially, Wakelet, Flipgrid, Forms, and OneNote. They will see basic application with digital worksheets and then see how to transform these lessons into evaluation and creation learning opportunities for students utilizing the applications mentioned.
