How I Use It
This is a web-based platform for both teachers and students. Actively Learn allows teachers to monitor and improve student learning. I like the way that I could select a specific text. This data base has an extensive library. Teachers and students can layer on the text their own questions. This component makes a great tool for teacher/student or student/student interactions.
My Take
Ready-made common core aligned questions and notes are available for both teachers and students. I like the fact that teachers can gather the stories for the students and assign questions, notes and videos in the reading materials of the students. I think this is a great tool that will help the students understand what they are reading. I love that you can juxtaposition things along side the paragraph that you assign for the students to read.
