SC Drivers Ed Course – “First-time drivers often wonder where to begin their study of rules of the road, road signs and other essential driving topics. The answer is simple: start with a reputable driver’s education course! The drivers ed course provided on this page has been designed to accompany the official SC driving manual, to help you get ready for the DMV permit test and build your confidence behind-the-wheel. Unlike state-mandated drivers ed classroom courses, this program is completely free to use and need not be completed within a specific time frame. Get started right away and return to the South Carolina driver’s ed course whenever you need to brush-up, over the coming weeks and months.” (L:H;SA:LA,C)

SC DMV Practice Test – “As a new driver’s license applicant in South Carolina, your journey toward a learner’s permit begins here! This is home to our free SC DMV practice test for 2020 applicants, which covers road signs, rules of the road, traffic signals and other essential driving knowledge. We have put this quiz together to help you study for the SC DMV permit test, which you must pass with a score 80% or over to qualify for a learner’s permit. Working through the DMV permit practice test South Carolina questions on this quiz will introduce you to some of the key road rules and road signs which will likely be addressed during the permit test. It will also give you an easy way to track your development, as you work through the information in the SC permit test study guide.” (L:H;SA:LA,C)

Teaching Students with Visual Impairments – “The mission of Teaching Students with Visual Impairments is to provide all persons involved in the student's education with the necessary resources they need to help each student become successful members of their communities and to equip those in the visual impairment field with a readily available resource to meet the wide range of needs of the students they serve. If you are entering, or currently in the vision field, you will find information related to all areas of the Expanded Core Curriculum as well as other resources related to all aspects of instructing students with visual impairments and adapting the environment, materials, and method of instruction. You will also find information on teaching strategies, professional development opportunities, and resources to continue your professional growth. If you are a classroom teacher, therapist or administrator unfamiliar with working with students who are blind or visually impaired, this site will assist you in preparing and creating a learning environment that is adapted to meet the unique needs of the students and to help you confidently teach them.” (L:T;SA:A)

Brightful Meeting Games – “Just because you've moved your meetings online, it doesn't mean you have to lose the human connection. We've designed five ridiculously fun icebreaker games to spark a little excitement and laughter in your next virtual gathering.” (L:T;SA:A)
