In the second session of our online PD series for teachers, participants discovered 12 practical ideas for using Story Box Library (SBL) as a digital resource for a variety of activities, making it a versatile tool for educators with multiple applications for learning, teaching and community use.

This session builds upon content from our first PD, Getting to Know the SBL Basics, and shares real-life examples of how SBL is being used to enhance learning and teaching programs. 

The event ran for 1.5 hours, with the final 30 minutes dedicated to an open Q&A.  

After attending this session, participants will gain foundation knowledge and training to further customise their own use of SBL’s unique features to assist in engaging and catering for the diverse and individual needs of students.
