Digital learning tools have proved themselves invaluable as classrooms across the globe made the abrupt change to online learning in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

These tools and trends can boost student engagement and motivate students to immerse themselves in learning–but as with any tech-based instruction, the technology is just a tool. What really makes digital learning tools effective is a highly-qualified teacher who augments a lesson and links learning to real life.

Here are some easy and engaging digital learning tools to try in the physical, virtual, or hybrid classroom.

1. Learning.com Tech Quest: Tech Quest is a new Learning.com feature that delivers essential technology skills to K-8 students without teachers needing to manage classes. Every student that has a Learning.com account is automatically assigned Tech Quest. Students just need to log in to their Learning.com account at login.learning.com, Clever, or Classlink.
