It was a whole school year before a colleague introduced me to Istation’s Assignments feature. Once I found out about it, my life as a middle school teacher became so much easier! Istation’s Assignments feature made it easy for me to instantly provide skill-based lessons and activities for my students.

Bridge the Tech Gap Between School and Home

I grew up in a household with two system engineers. When I began teaching, my childhood comfort with technology followed me into the classroom; I was always thrilled to introduce new hardware or software to my students.

Research shows that children who read fluently do better in school. It's not just teachers who make it happen, though. Parents play a key role, too. As such, it is important for parents to become reading role models for their children. To help get parents started, we've created a guide that outlines five things parents can do to this summer to prepare their children for school in fall. This guide not only shows you how to encourage your child to read but also outlines ways to turn television and games into literacy tools.
