That's a Wrap!
The Summer 2020 ETMS Cohort has finished up! Over the course of 6 weeks in July and August 2020, 44 educators from 25 states and the District of Columbia built their edtech tool chops using Quizlet, Google Forms, and Wakelet. As a result, over 1,000 engaging, mobile-friendly resources have been created and are now part of the Marshall Leveled Reading Program!

This Summer 2020 cohort was funded in part by a Creative Commons Communities Activity Fund Grant! Thank you to Creative Commons for their tireless, global effort to increase educational access by expanding the range of creative works available for others to build upon legally and to share.
Learn New Tech Tools. Do Good.
As more learning is happening virtually, we see two trends: 1) instructors want to learn how to use edtech tools effectively, and 2) learners and instructors are looking for more free, quality online content.
Enter the EdTech Maker Space!
Imagine you could learn how to use new tools and in doing so create quizzes, study sets, and other engaging online resources that help support the broader adult education community?
That's the idea behind the EdTech Maker Space! As you read this, 40+ adult educators are learning the ins and outs of edtech tools such as Quizlet, Quizziz, Google Forms, Padlet, Wakelet, and more, all the while applying their new skills as they build resources that become freely available to all!
Take Something Great. Make it Better
Reading Skills for Today's Adults (RSTA) is a fantastic, free leveled library designed to provide extensive reading and fluency practice for early level readers. Currently, the vocabulary and comprehension exercises are available within a Word Doc provided for each story.
What if we took these supporting exercises and recreated them using interactive edtech tools such as Quizlet, Google Forms, and Wakelet to provide more engaging, mobile-friendly learning options?
