    Teaching Toolbox: Drawing applications

    This episode kicks off my 2022 "toolbox" series of episodes where I will be sharing my favorite classroom tools to help you prepare for the 2022-23 school year. 
    The first toolbox episode is all about drawing, sketching, and doodling! More schools are purchasing touch-screen Chromebooks which means you need to know the best apps for taking notes, annotating videos, and being creative. 
    Episode sponsor: Penoval, creator of the USI702 digital stylus with built-in eraser.
