How I Use It
I use it 2 to 3 times a week to differentiate math groups. I work with one group daily (either my high or low group) while the other group practices math using IXL on the class iPads. I have an Aide in the classroom who keeps the group on track and helps with tech issues when needed. Students sometimes log-off or try to work on the wrong level but with the paid version I can see what they worked on and they know I can see it.
My Take
I like the website and app but I would like to be able to set the level and activity for each child. As of now the students can choose their own and move whenever they like which I do not like. What I like about the app is that it gives them typing practice and it reads the questions to them if they need it.
