All strategies, digital activities, and digital tools experienced can be leveraged in face-to-face or virtual learning environments.

The AVID presenter was great. The WICOR strategies opened my mind to many new ways I can practice reading/writing in between my lessons.
These two days were incredible. I learned a lot about collaboration, engagement, and note taking. I would really like to attend more AVID trainings since I did bring a lot of information back with me.
Overall the presenter was very engaging and the experience allowed for multiple teachers in the district to collaborate about the content.
