How I Use It
In my class students have a specific requirement of how much needs to be completed every week. It is important that they work on their assignfocus work because it relates to what we are learning in the classroom as well.
What I like about this program is that students love using the technology and it is a wonderful way to integrate it. Students like to have friendly competition of who can complete the most lessons and they love the features of earning coins to buy backgrounds and music. What can be frustrating is sometimes the directions don't seem to be specific enough. I can see on my teacher end when a student is struggling and many times it isn't that they don't know how to do it, it's that they don't know how to navigate the tools to solve the problems through Dreambox. This can be fixed pretty easily with me redirecting the students but it's something to be mindful of.
