Digestible Daily Dose – Small Ideas for a Big Job! 

Along with concerns about COVID-19, AIMS schools - teachers, staff, administrators - now have to figure out how to deliver content online, create classroom and school- wide communities online, handle business operations and continue to celebrate one another and the larger school community through virtual methods. 

AIMS is here to help! We will be sharing tips--mostly from all of you--for delivering distance education with an eye towards bite-sized, easily implementable pieces

The Digestible Daily Dose will be emailed to AIMS membership on a regular basis, 2-3 times a week  It will include topics that come to us from our member schools as well as insight gathered from other colleagues, educators, business and the many creative ideas shared with AIMS,  See the chart below for the editions of the Digestible and the topics included to find one that will be helpful to you in the work ahead.
