TARGET AUDIENCE: GRADE 7-12 TEACHERS

Wait. What? 

NO bus? No forms? No counting heads?  Tell me more…

We know that getting teens engaged in curriculum content can be tricky at times.  That’s why we are tapping into the expertise and resources of Digital Human Library (dHL) to bring the real world into your junior or senior high class through the use of digital experiential learning.  Through our partnership with dHL, we will activate your subject with amazing possibilities such as interactive 1:1 video conferences, educational virtual tours, and web-based virtual reality (no fancy goggles needed)!

A quick visit with us will help you capture the minds and attention of your students this spring.  Costs are low, tech-needs are minimal, and background experience is not required! 

Join us for just 30 minutes at a time in this 2-part series.  Sign-up Today!
