Each student is different and therefore has their own unique needs and preferences for their learning. As an educator, you also have your own needs and preferences for teaching. There are online resources that strategize with you and your student to best reach your educational goals, working together. The following resources provide support for both you and your student as you seek to find the best methods for learning.
PowerMyLearning is an online platform that supports educators through a framework that seeks to create a relationship between students, educators, and families to work together to reach a common educational goal. PowerMyLearning believes that a student’s success in their academics significantly increases when families, students, and educators work together. Although the site offers in-person training to teachers on methods and strategies, they also offer online games and resources that are also helpful for students who need support in areas of their studies.

It is also helpful when facing time pressure for a school deadline.
