Recently, Tech & Learning Magazine selected 10 finalists in each of three categories for its annual Awards of Excellence: best use of education technology in the classroom, school, and district. Gale’s Kids InfoBits, an age-appropriate, easy-to-use digital resource that covers a broad range of educational topics, was named a finalist in the “Best Use of EdTech in a District” category.
Tech & Learning cited Gale’s Kids InfoBits unique features, such as the ability to browse topics within a category, utilize integrated tools to create highlights, notes, and citations and limit search results by content type and more, in its justification.
“For those interested in personalizing education, allowing students to read about people from their culture, and seeing history from multiple perspectives, this resource is terrific. Kids InfoBits also allows teachers to share curated resources and primary sources with students. This phenomenal tool enables culturally relevant teaching, which is a great need in schools today.”
