Teachers are constantly looking for digital applications to use and recommend to students. Is the application age appropriate? Does it meet the privacy, safety, and security specifications of your district? This process can be daunting and time-consuming. Attend this session for a demo of Houston ISD's interactive AppToolBox solution. We will discuss our collaboration with Clever to customize HISDs dashboard.

Learning Outcome #1
At the end of my session, participants will be able to effectively search HISD's AppToolBox, which is opened to the public, for safe digital resources to implement into the classroom.

Learning Outcome #2
At the end of my session, participants will be able to locate short video-tutorials and how to guides for various digital resources.

Model and promote strategies for achieving equitable access to digital tools and resources and technology-related best practices for students and teachers.
