How I Use It
In the classroom, I used eSpark during our differentiated instruction block. This worked wonderfully because every student regardless of their individual skill levels was able to work independently. Feedback from the program alerted me to who need support in small group and what skill area. When Distance learning became our new way of life, my students are able to continue having support at their designated level to keep knowledge growing. I am able to hold small group Zooms and provide lessons and support when needed.
My Take
Overall I love eSpark and am hoping to continue to use it in the years to come whether the principal pays for it or I get donations to pay for it. I have found it to be an invaluable learning tool in my classroom that provides my students with the skills they need to continue strengthening their academic skills.
