SSTLAP meets Technology!
This guide, “The Digital PIRATE,” encourages teachers to providethose experiences by tapping into technology that grabs students’ attention immediately and redefines learning. This guide provides 20 classroom activity ideas based on the “Teach Like a PIRATE” engagement hooks and a free technology tool. Hopefully, you’ll find some ideas to set sail on a great adventure! - Matt Miller @jmattmiller
