Smile DISCUSSION: Personalising learning: Isn’t there a worksheet for that? Feb 12th

Smile FORUM: Student content creation and curation, April 11th - May 12th

This forum invites you to share ways you are using technologies to meet the strengths and needs of your students - with focus on digital literacies. Come join us in Enabling e-Learning | Technologies group.


Your input and ideas are valued and welcome in all of these forum discussions. What we need is the voice of many!
