Program: The Right Tool for the Right Job:  Essentials for One Teacher’s Online Studio

If you’re tired of searching for the right tool for the right job, please attend this presession where I will discuss my top tools for online teaching. I use some of these tools during in-person lessons too. Hardware, software – we all have our essential equipment, and I hope that you can benefit from my returns, exchanges, trials and errors! I will bring my laptop and equipment so you can see how things work.
