Intro to Digital Tools
Instructional Technology Resources for Students and Families
AACPS utilizes many digital applications in the classroom. This site is designed to assist students and families with how to use the digital tools implemented in instruction.
All virtual classrooms live in Brightspace, AACPS's learning management system. Along with Brightspace, students may be asked to use Google Workspace for Education applications (ex. Docs, Slides, Drawings) as well as other programs such as Wixie, WeVideo, Adobe Express, and Lumio (formerly the SMART Learning Suite Online).
