Explora for Educators: Digital Resources for Teachers

When you're stuck behind a computer or tablet screen, it can be difficult to engage with students. Distance learners can find their focus wandering and their motivation waning without the immediate surroundings of a classroom environment. Since everyone's feeling rather stuck indoors these days, challenge your students to design their own escape room! Learn how in "Breaking Out with STEM-Based Escape Rooms" by Eric D. Laguardia, Samantha Heller, and Laurie O. Campbell.

Discover more lesson plans, student tools, and other digital resources to expand your distance learning toolset! Explora for Educational Professionals is designed with teachers in mind. This teacher's companion to the various Explora databases assists educators in expanding professional knowledge and developing new ways to teach kids and teens of all ages in the current distance learning environment. Search for articles across ERIC and Academic Search Complete, and explore research guides and other tools.
