Playlists

Educators and students can create playlist that are a compilation of relevant videos, documents, images, and/or audio that will aid in learning.

Educators can create playlist for students to view at home that are assessment, anticipatory sets, introductory, and/or part of daily learning.

Please remember to name playlist in a manner that will aid in searching for both educators and students.

We suggest: District Initials/School Initials - Topic - Teacher Name
