My Take

A word of caution - Scootpad released a completely new interface in September, 2014. It is very different and looks to be targeted at an upper elementary/middle school. It has lost a lot of the pop for younger elementary students - my K and 1 students are really struggling with the audio support in the math areas. They added "scoots rials" to provide students with self paced help - some are better than others. I would definitely ask fora trial and pilot with real students.

How I Use It

We bought this product last spring because our elementary kids trailed it and loved the interface. It was bright, engaging and elementary looking. It has nice features for customizing content and some decent reporting tools for monitoring student progress.
