How I Use It
I use espark during small group instruction and individual practice. I have a 15 minute block in both reading and math that I use espark. Every Monday, I set up small groups and assignments for the students to do each week. I also like to assign challenging activities to my above level kids.
My Take
I have had the best luck this year as my class is now on Chromebooks vs. iPads. I still have some issues with our tech department and some of the activities I cannot get to. The students LOVE recording and explaining their work. This took a lot of practice. I wish that there were 10 questions instead of 5 for mastery. That's my opinion. Nothing is better when they get to a concept that we are doing and or have done, and they come up to me and are like "I know this! We did this!"
