How I Use It
My students use this for daily practice of the skills they need. I can also set lessons for them based off of what we are learning or may have already learned. I use this tool also to help fill in academic gaps and provide enrichment and challenges for my advanced learners. I love that they have the video application that lets me watch them answer a question. However it is time consuming to set and watch the videos and give the feed back.
My Take
I like that it saves me time from having to search the web for appropriate practicing and or videos. I like that I can see where the kids are working in regards to lessons and standards. It is also helpful that I can adjust their learning levels too. I do wish there was a better way to view the videos and not have to search through each kid to see what videos I need to watch. I also love that I get an email of the High Fives but I have also noticed that it misses some of the kids' high fives.
