While it may not feel like fall outside, the ads for fall clothes and school supplies are everywhere, reminding all of us that summer break is coming to a close. As you busy yourselves unpacking classroom boxes and assembling lesson plans, take some time to make sure that your digital tools are also ready for the soon-to-come influx of students.
