COOL School Technologies facilitated a session titled Using Technology to Differentiate Instruction with Free Tools at Oakland University's Enhancing Instruction with Technology Conference on March 4, 2017. Participants had an opportunity to get hands-on experience with free web tools and discuss how to integrate them into their classroom lessons.
