Over the years, there has been increased use of technology in the classroom. The advances of technology into the classroom is great, but sometimes, all the different tools can become overwhelming.

To help, the ROE has created a bi-weekly series called #TuesdayTechTip to cover pertinent topics such as Zoom, wifi, social media, security and more.  These videos are designed to help navigate through the technology world and everyday tech issues in a user-friendly way.
