Digitability COVID Classrooms

COVID Classrooms Provide Innovative Work-Ready Services

Digitability is helping schools across the country create or enhance their school-based work-ready and transition programs through one award-winning program.

Dana Steinwart is an 18-21 Life Skills Teacher in the Blue Valley Unified School District. This school year, Dana will have 15 students. Twelve of those 15 will attend in-person classes, while the other three will attend virtually.

As Dana begins planning her Work Simulation in this hybrid setting, she is able to access both in-classroom as well as virtual resources from the Digitability Library. Dana describes how she is adapting her teaching with Digitability during COVID to ensure that students are receiving their federally mandated services under IDEA.
