How I Use It
Puffin Academy is basically a portal in which students can access flash-based tools and resources. Several companies that publish textbooks such as Pearson and Harcourt, etc. are publishers from within Puffin Academy. Students at my school are utilizing the app to access targeted academic interventions otherwise unavailable on their mobile devices.
My Take
This app has allowed our students to access differentiated instruction though online content provided by textbook publishers. It is an important tool to access effective and relevant teaching and learning activities highly differentiated based on student needs.
