Great for blended learning environments and differentiated instruction.
I feel like a kid can easily understand a topic but because they don't have enough experience with the different tools in the program and don't know how to use/manipulate computers they get stressed or overwhelmed. I wish there was a bank of just manipulatives/tools as a teacher resource. If I could project and teach using the tools then they can transfer that understanind/confusion to derambox in terms of math concepts and not computing concepts.
How I Use It
I love that is shows what Ss are proficient at so I can use that as 1 more piece of evidence for student understanding. I can close the gaps from prior grade level(s) to make sure they are completely prepared for what is coming.
