How I Use It
I like that this site allows you to create student accounts without email addresses. With this setup, you can assign video, quizzes, and practice problems with a due date, to the entire class or whichever students you select. You can prepare supplementary review work, center work, enrichment work, and/or homework assignments for the upcoming week in advance so that is available for your students, if you don't mind the option of them being able to complete work in advance. Otherwise, you can just assign videos and work as you want them to be done, even creating a quick code for a lesson or activity, so that students have faster access to assignments than they would if they logged in. The quick code is also really helpful for when students don't remember their login information, as it allows immediate access to a video, etc without a student having to login. Teachers get immediate feedback after students have completed assignments, so this can be a great quick assessment or exit slip type of scenario. I love that the videos also have slides of the lesson that includeguided practice and enrichment activities that can be downloaded and printed for students.
Overall, this website is an great resource! It has a lot of videos that are arranged in lesson sets by each Common Core Standard across ELA and math strands. For the most part, the videos are arranged in a sequential order that makes sense for how you would develop the concept. The videos are short, simple, and have great visual supports. It's definitely worth the time to set it up and learn how to use it with your class, as it can support all students, whether they are struggling or advanced. It's also great homework helper for parents, who may need a bit of support.
