How I Use It
I used LearnZillion to introduce Common Core math strategies to my class. I also signed-up each student in my class so that I could individualize instruction. I am able to assign specific videos and quizzes to my students so that they can work at their own pace and level. It is also a nice way to help parents understand the new strategies that are required by the CCSS.
My Take
This is a simple tool that does not require a lot of work to setup. It is easy to pull up a video and play it on our big screen. The biggest challenge is to get students to actually watch the instructional videos and to do so before completing the quizzes. Many of the math strategies in the Common Core are clearly explained in the videos.
