Very visual and engaging, but no always friendly
Overall I really like this tool, because it allows most students to practice independent skills. I think it could be better if teachers were able to opt students out of certain lessons that don’t fit the standard or the learner.Continue reading

DreamBox: The Educational Technology That Kids Use Because They Want To
I think it's an excellent teaching tool because students find it very engaging. I like how the activities aren't just fun, but directly related to the skills they need for math. Sometimes it is hard for students to find the activities that I specifically assign in DreamBox.Continue reading

Dreambox is great to help students work on Math at their level and helps them fill gaps in past grade levels. The lessons go at the students own pace. Kids can work on this at home for homework as well. Lesson are aligned with our common core curriculum.
This a great teaching tool. While one group is working at their own pace on Dreambox; I am able to pull a small group to work on guided math at my table.Continue reading

Good for practice, and filling holes! Sometimes confusing and not as engaging as they advertise.
Positives 1. It's good practice. Kids are using manipulatives and moving things around on the screen. There are lots of different kinds of models and lessons. 2. The adaptive piece is extremely important. The program is designed to meet kids at their level of understanding so long as you don't use assignments. Instructions are read out loud to students with the option for captions, removing some of the language barriers. 3. It gives me pretty good data as far as standards covered and areas of struggle. Areas of growth 1. Some of these lessons are REALLY confusing. If I have a student stuck on a lesson, I often have to go in and play it myself to really understand what they're looking for. They definitely cover standards in depth, and if we're honest, we are all confused by those standards from time to time. But some of these games are quite difficult to really figure out and play. 2. Time constraints are tough. They really need at least 20 minutes a day to get any benefit from the program. 3. My students aren't really engaged in it. While it's advertised as game-based, it's like any math game you'd see in a typical workshop center. This isn't a game my kids are begging to play. Yes, it is game-based which makes it better than other programs, but the competitive element is missing that keeps my students motivated in a game like Prodigy.Continue reading

Great concept but could be better.
I like using Dreambox during math centers to provide students with targeted practice for specific math standards. I would like for this program to provide deeper instruction for my students who require it. They get practice but I still have many students who finish lessons with no gain in understanding about various concepts. However, there are some students that are able to gain a better understanding of ideas, those are usually my higher performing students.Continue reading

Not Dreaming! Fabulous Math Fun!
This is a new teaching tool for me. I like it better than many other programs we have used in the past. I like that it's individualized and worked with kids at their level. I like the variety of tracks and challenges for students. I still hope to learn more about how to use it to enhance my classroom instruction, which will just be finding the time!Continue reading
