Bitmoji Classrooms are sweeping the nation with their engaging digital content. Nebraska 4-H jumped into the Bitmoji Classroom craze and developed Check the DECK! (Digital Engagement Classroom Kits). By creating technology-based digital experiences, and utilizing relevant educational resources, youth engagement and learning excelled to new heights.      

Striving toward Nebraska Extension’s key practice of innovation, the newly created digital curricula blends virtual & hands-on learning experiences and fosters active and engaging youth learning opportunities.

Mobile iGrow Educational displays have been making the rounds to Hall County elementary schools!  Each interactive display includes a teaching guide, hands-on activities, and an iGrow activity worksheet, targeting elementary students.

The displays are like a “mini-field trip at the school” reported one teacher. Focused on Nebraska school standards in math, social studies, and STEM, the displays increase students’ knowledge of where our food comes from, careers, and how agriculture is important in our everyday lives.
