Webinar Highlights:

  • Discover how learning occurs in ST Math
  • Support students working in the program from home
  • Uncover how to view student progress
  • Locate additional resources for ST Math use at home

Presented by Jim deBerjeois, and Vivian Doughty, Professional Learning Specialists at MIND Research Unit.
