New Case Studies Published on Ed Surge: Dreambox and Learn with Homer

half_size_S_Cool_Tools__1_-1462551027EdSurge is my go-to resource to all things ed Tech/Teacher News.  They’re teacher-nerd heaven when it comes to digital resources and e-learning ideas.  I told you all about how I use the EdSurge product index a few weeks back.

I am excited to be able to share my professional insights with them and their SCool Tools section.  They published two case studies I wrote on my experiences using two of my favourite tools -Dreambox and Learn with Homer. I have written about Learn with Homer before and it’s power to sequentially skill build early reading skills. The program starts with basic phonology and works up to train young readers how to understand and comprehend short texts. What Learn with Homer is to reading, Dreambox is to math. It too discerns a learners math gaps and systematically works to close them and skill build using engaging, fun games. So head over to Ed Surge’s SCool Tools to check our my case studies on Learn with Homer and Dreambox.
