Hot Topic Friday! LearnZillion

Common Core Standards, technology, Heidi Befort, Globicate


     A couple of weeks ago, I told you about one of my favorite sites, Scootpad.com which is a great Common Core site that tailors math and ELA practice to meet individual student needs.  Well, LearnZillion.com goes one step further and combines 2 sites that I love, Scootpad.com and Kahn Academy, into an online classroom where students can watch lessons specifically aligned to the Common Core Standards, and then practice what they watched with the guided practice section. LearnZillion has everything set up for you including letters for parents, practice sheets to turn into the teacher, and classrooms where you can monitor, adjust, and differentiate for your students.  LearnZillion is easy to use, easy to set up, and easy to implement in your classroom.  I can even see if you are short technology in your classroom, assigning these lessons either before (like a flipped classroom) or after for homework or reinforcement after the days lessons.  I'm not sure which site I like more now, LearnZillion.com or Scootpad.com.  Check them out and let me know what you think, I'd love to hear your thoughts!
