How I Use It
I like the options presented to students to assist in finding their answers. I think it helps prepare students for standard-aligned computer based assessments. My students all have accounts and are encouraged to play when they have finished their other assignments. Many student play nightly at home. A number have had parents upgrade their accounts to unlock additional features.
My Take
I heard about Prodigy at a conference. They were kind enough to set up our school accounts for us once I provided a spreadsheet of student information. My students love to play this game. They feel like it is a video game. They continue to make adjustments and add features to the site. It is worth checking out.
