How I Use It
I would use this app to provide students with differentiated instruction during our math and ELA blocks. It would be a perfect way for students to work at their own level and pace while I am meeting with a small group. It would also be great to use as homework for students with access to the necessary technology. It could also be used to quickly find resources for teaching specific standards.
My Take
Overall this is a great app. It links many free web resources to the appropriate standards and provides assessments to measure progress. While it is a very useful tool, it is somewhat limited in the way some of the standards are covered. For example one of the 6th grade math standards specifically refers to tape diagrams and double number lines, but they are never mentioned in the linked videos or assessments for that standard. I also wish that there was some sort of notepad on which students could draw and write out equations in order to solve the problems.
