Atomic Learning Introduces New Internet Safety Spotlight and More!

Atomic Learning has expanded its training collection to include a Spotlight on internet safety, as well as several new training series. The Keeping Kids Safe Online Spotlight provides professional development for educators and helps students learn how to navigate the Internet safely, in addition to helping administrators meet E-rate requirements of the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and the Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act.  The training can be found at: http://www.atomiclearning.com/k12/spotlight/Keeping-Kids-Safe-Online.

COMING SOON! Spotlight: Keeping Kids Safe Online

Starting in July, all school districts receiving E-rate funding will have to meet the stipulations of the Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act. Atomic Learning has the resources necessary to meet the Internet Safety requirements for E-rate, in addition to the reporting tools you will need to track student participation.  To help support schools in addressing those requirements, we’re compiling all these resources in a Spotlight page that will be available for the 2012-2013 school year.  To help in your planning, we wanted to share the resources that will be included with our customers before the Spotlight page launches.

Authentic Student Assessment Using iPads

With more and more schools using iPads®, many teachers are left wondering how to adapt their instruction to take full advantage of these new devices.
