How I Use It
At the start, Book Retriever takes a fair bit of set up time (though it's easy). Scan the bar code of all the books in your classroom library and add all your students. Then you can check out and check in books super easily. It helps maintain the class library (and avoid lost books), but it also helps you keep track of what individual students are reading (titles, lexile, etc.) which is helpful data to help help students move forward in their reading.
Useful and easy to use. It's not a big TEACHING/LEARNING tool, but it's a hand thing to have. My students loved using it when I let them scan the books in.
