Would you like more time to meet with small groups? Create a deeper relationship with students? This session will provide teachers with practical ideas for easy management of station rotation. Learn to integrate a variety of free technology tools that actively engage students and place accountability on students for their own learning. These strategies differentiate instruction, allow students to learn at their own pace, and help teachers gain vital instructional time for application of learning.
