General
How I Use It
I have used this website as an incentive for students where they can use a laptop when their classwork is completed. I have also used this website for whole group lessons and classroom games. Students have also used this website during free choice time in the Computer Lab where they can select the skills that they would like to work on. For RTI or Title One students, this is a great tool for educators because the teacher can put in the standard that the student is struggling with and there are a variety of ways the student can then use the website to work on these standards.
My Take
This is a great website that can be used to help you differentiate while in a whole group setting in the Computer Lab. I also think this is a great website for use when students have free time to reinforce a skill and/or try some advanced problems with a skill they have just been taught. Each subject is addressed here and I like the feature which allows you to select a standard and then have children do games/problems/answer questions surrounding that standard.
