How I Use It
I used eSpark with my students during our small group instruction time. The students who weren't working with me would work at their own pace on eSpark. I liked that it was challenging each student at an appropriate level. The kids liked it because it's fun.
My Take
I am a fan of eSpark. You can re-set students if the original placement quiz doesn't accurately assess their current understanding. My students were always excited to use eSpark. I like that the "reward" for doing well is that they get to create instructional videos. It makes the content the motivating factor, as opposed to earning things like coins, which can take students' focus away from learning. eSpark also sends a weekly email with small group suggestions, so you know where each of your students could use more support. As a bonus, they have amazing customer service. They are quick and personal.
