How I Use It
I use Scootpad as a learning center and for home use. I purchased a class subscription so that I can make the CCSS match my pacing guide. Students go through the skills at their own pace. Students choose classroom prizes that they can earn by answering questions. For school breaks or snow days, I have suggested that parents with computer access use Scootpad to engage their students in learning.
I like that I can customize the learning path for my students and that the learning path is based on Common Core State Standards. While Scootpad falls to the lower levels of Webb's Depth of Knowledge, I find that it makes good independent practice. I believe this will help prepare my students for standardized testing. The interface allows for a whiteboard-like section where students can work out math problems. In addition, students get feedback on how they did and what they missed. The teacher data is exceptional and helps pinpoint skills that students need additional direct teaching.
