Tech Tools for School Counselors
Strategies and Tools to be More Engaging, Efficient, and Effective
During In-Person, Remote,
and Blended Learning Environments
With phones, tablets, and computers, we’re all in a constant cycle of upgrades. Still, in most of our regular day-to-day practice, many educators continue to use the same practices. The sudden shift to remote education has pushed us out of our comfort of ‘tried but true’ educational engagement blueprint and tools to update our design thinking and strategies. Like a favorite app or device, we can upgrade our daily practice with only a few modifications. We can improve time efficiency, productivity, and add additional style and elegance - promoting engagement, just by plugging in with the right tools.
