Best Practices for using Knowre Math during Remote Learning

Posted by Bara Levitt on 11/30/20 11:46 AM

With many schools across the country pausing in-person learning due to spiking COVID-19 cases, we wanted to take some time to focus on best practices for using Knowre Math within a remote learning environment. If you've already been regularly integrating Knowre Math into your weekly practice with your students you should be able to transition quite seamlessly into using the program for remote learning.
