NO annoying questions, NO constant quizzing, NO fill in the blanks when reading, NO badges, NO points...
Do you want to answer "What sentence in the 2nd paragraph best describes the main idea?" Students don't want to either!
Ever surveyed students about what they like best about reading in class? We have, and they want to talk about the text with their classmates.
When students have different knowledge, vocabulary, and skills, the right help can mean the difference between persistence and giving up.
When students read independently, they realize the value of reading, build stamina and skills, and turn into avid readers.
More content, reporting, and flexibility transforms what teachers can do
We have thousands of free resources that can replace your ELA, Science, and Social Studies textbooks.
Use your favorite web articles, Google Docs, and PDFs -- and then embed questions directly into the text.
Teachers can build and share curriculum with colleagues at both their school and their district (like Google Docs).
See students' thinking, measue their effort, and track their growth along standards over time.
One of the best resources I have for my personalized learning classroom is Actively Learn! My students find it easy to use and it helps me have better evidence of each student's mastery of the standards with the many insightful reports it generates.
Our school has found Actively Learn to be a fantastic tool not just for ELA, but in any content area. The students look forward to assignments, they are easy to grade, and the data (especially using Actively Learn PRO) helps us understand where students are and where they can improve.
For any company wanting to know how to best respond to customer feedback, I suggest you talk to @activelylearn. They've got it nailed.
@AbbeyFutrell you were not lying. @activelylearn is already changing my life and it has only been a couple minutes. #ipdx15
Whoa! Seriously. Whoa. http://ActivelyLearn.com has ridiculous potential for Social Studies, Science, and ELA. Check it out! #hcsdoetc #OETC15
Activelylearn.com has changed the way I teach! It is an invaluable resource that I tell all my colleagues about, too. I'm getting a lot more thoughtful written responses from my students than by any other means. I love it!
