How I Use Classkick in My Classroom
Using Classkick for the past two years has provided me a strong and effective lesson planning and delivery tool that has strengthened my lessons beyond words. Using Classkick I can provide not only individualized lessons for my diverse learners, but I can provide real time feedback and assistance privately when and how my students need it. The biggest advantage Classkick has provided me as a reading specialist is the ability to assess and record my students reading assessments throughout the year. Students record their assessments right on Classkick thus providing me with an audio and visual recorded portfolio for each student. It has helped me plan individualized instruction and report progress in a 21st century way.
