Community Learning

Resource Hub

This page serves as a Community Learning Resource Hub for the most used technologies within Clarke County Public Schools. You will find images or logos of each technology below with the name, an instructional video, and further resources underneath. This is a dynamic resource that will have more technologies added and resources updated throughout the school year.  If you find that we're missing a technology you'd like to learn more about, please submit this form  and we'll get it added as soon as we can after evaluating its use in CCPS.

Tip: You can use the search button (magnifying glass) at the top right of the website to search this page or use CTRL+F to bring up a search box.

Most Used CCPS Technology

Below are some tools that are available to all staff, students, and/or families. There are many other tools used for distance learning that are available by grade level, course, and/or site.
