12 Of The Best Math Apps For Kids

12 Of The Best Math Apps For Kids | My K-12 Ed Tech Edition | Scoop.it

We created a collection of 12 of the best math apps for kids–specifically, elementary school students. We focused on the kinds of apps that introduce students to concepts, as well as those that let students practice and progress. Better yet, many are adaptive learning apps, adjusting in difficulty to meet an individual student at their level. Some (e.g., ProdigyGame) also feature dashboards as well for both teachers and students track progress over time.

Revisiting Khan Academy with a Clean Slate

Revisiting Khan Academy with a Clean Slate | My K-12 Ed Tech Edition | Scoop.it

I encourage readers to forget everything they have heard about KA and revisit the site with a fresh perspective. More importantly, I hope this article sparks conversation about how technology is used in your school this year. This is just one example of using technology to differentiate student outcomes, and meeting the needs of each individual student are driving this approach. Some teachers can get caught up in the latest ed tech resources and forget to prioritize educational value above all else. Read more about not falling into the trap of cool tools rather than learning in this Connect IT article.

Deb Gardner's insight:

KA is so much more than the vids. #truth
