It’s a new school year and a fresh start. Our goal is still to save educators time and get them back to doing what they love: teaching! To that end, we will continue to add features and offer additional resources to help you all get the most from your Boom Learning accounts, but we’re also answering your most asked questions.
Over the summer, we noticed a lot of interest in live training session, so we’ve kicked the year off with exactly that!
In August, we covered the basics in our Intro to Boom Learning Webinar. Our agents answered questions as Kyle led everyone through set up and toured tools and basic techniques for using Boom Cards to teach. In September, we launched a series of webinars led by educator-experts which goes live every Wednesday.
Shannon Archer, SLP with 14 years experience, then showed us How to Use Boom Cards for Speech Therapy. She demonstrates how to address individual goals for clinic and home-based therapy and shares tele-practice techniques and tips to differentiate activities for mixed groups.
On the 22nd, Frances Amato, STEAM teacher and Boom Author, will share tips to Save Time with Boom Student Reports, and Kimberly Jacobs will wrap up this month with IEP Progress Monitoring. Get all the details and sign-up here, or watch past webinars and How To videos on Boom’s Vimeo or on YouTube channels.
Keep an eye out for future Educator Led Webinars in October and more, because we will continue to release new webinars, how-to videos, and other live events throughout the school year. Topics range from assigning decks and getting the most out of reports data to creating and even selling Boom Cards.
