How I Use It
I used the Front Row iPad app to provide personalized math practice for my students in the classroom and at home. Although similar practice was available through my school's math curriculum, Front Row offered an efficient and engaging way to personalize student math practice while providing useful data about where students were excelling and struggling. During class, students used the app during math centers and with classroom helpers; I also gave the option for student to use the Front Row app at home in lieu of traditional math practice if they showed mastery of grade-level math skills.
My Take
Front Row is a useful tool in order to add extra interactive, personalized math practice in the classroom. When the iPad app works, students were able to take part in engaging, frustration-free math practice; however, the app would occasionally act up and not update student progress. Overall, the benefits outweigh the technical issues.
