Digital learning is “any instructional practice that effectively uses technology to strengthen a student’s learning experience”. Digital Learning Day began as a way for teachers and innovators nationwide to share new and exciting technologies that enhance instruction and improve student outcomes. At Learning Without Tears, we are excited to celebrate Digital Learning Day by sharing the exciting ways we are improving children’s experiences in the classroom with technology!

 

DLD 2020 HITTThe Handwriting Interactive Teaching Tool (HITT) is a one-stop, comprehensive digital platform for teaching handwriting. HITT works alongside our new editions of handwriting student editions and teacher’s guides to provide interactive and engaging lessons right at teachers’ fingertips. HITT offers lesson-enhancing multimedia options like digital letter and number formations, award-winning animations, music, and instructional videos. Resources, such as cross-curricular connections, supplemental lessons, and school-to-home downloads are readily available all within each digital teacher’s guide and student edition.

It functions similarly to HITT, featuring digital versions of the Get Set for School teacher’s guides and student editions with an abundance of exciting and engaging multimedia options to accompany each lesson. In PreKITT, educators will find delightful resources for each lesson within their digital teacher’s guides, and even more lesson-specific learning opportunities within the digital student editions. PreKITT for Get Set for School also includes read-alouds of our beloved Mat Man books! What better way to learn about jobs in the community than by trying on hats with Mat Man?
