This year, learn how to use a different tool or resource each month to integrate at any point during the school year. Once you do, share in the Win a Bag of Teacher Swag Form for a chance to win a bag of teacher swag!

December’s activity focuses on Computer Science Week which is December 5-11. Tech Elf Ashley can help with any questions you may have about it. 

Tech Elf Meredith is also available to answer any questions about any of the other WIN a Bag of Teacher Swag activities!
