     Tutor Pace recently launched a new diagnostic tool that covers both SAT and ACT tests for students to practice before appearing for their exam.

     Virtual learning environment designed for teachers, instructors, or professors and their students. Teachers can create classes, design tests, quizzes, and/or exams , and assign to any of the created classes or students.

    Explain Everything
     How It Works: Use the Explain Everything app to create presentations that incorporate a virtual whiteboard, photos, movies, and more.
    Beginner: Have students use Explain Everything to create a video explaining a procedure, such as a  science experiment, recipe, or math problem explanation.
    Expert: Check out the EE Showcase for tutorials and videos about how to impress your students (or have your students impress you) with your presentation-making skills.
     How It Works: Duo Linguo is a free website and app for learning languages for kids and adults. It offers courses in Spanish, French, German, Brazilian Portuguese, and Italian. Kids can progress through a series of lessons at their skill level.
    Beginner: Students can use the apps to do lessons disguised as games. In each lesson, players get four “lives.” Get an answer wrong, you lose a life. Run out, start the lesson over again.
    Expert: Have students work in groups to compete for the most points!
     How It Works: Using this computer tool, students create avatars on their class page and earn points and badges for positive behavior.
    Beginner: Use Class Dojo’s information as a way for students to explain their behavior to their parents during conferences.
    Expert: Use Class Dojo to organize students into groups, then stage a competition to see which group can perform the best based on your class rules or character trait of the week.
     How It Works: Socrative is a student response program that allows students to respond directly to questions.
    Beginner: Create checks for understandings and on-going short assessments that vary from games to true-false quizzes.
    Expert: Use the data that Socrative provides (in a Google or Excel file) to group, re-teach, and reassess students on core skills.
     How It Works: A virtual online three-ring binder that allows you to create and keep snapshots and collections of student work.
    Beginner: Have students use Three Ring as virtual portfolios that they can present to their parents.
    Expert: Set a goal for your professional development this year. Then, use Three Ring to track your progress toward that goal by capturing snapshots of your class throughout the year.

    A mobile app with a desktop version, Three Ring is worthy of consideration as well. As with Evernote, students can create and upload content from their own devices and tag, search and share their portfolios. However, what Three Ring offers that Evernote doesn't is teacher-created class accounts. In other words, teachers initiate the use of Three Ring in the classroom by creating classrooms within the teacher account and adding students to each class. Students can then access their teacher-monitored account with a username and password provided. Whether from an iOS or Android device or from a desktop or laptop computer, content can be added by the teacher or student and commented on by both. Three Ring even allows parents to view their students' accounts once linked by the teacher.

    Regardless of the platform you choose, empowering and authenticating your students' learning with digital portfolios is a decision that you won't regret. Through providing them with web-based space to collect their own work, you will be helping them practice digital citizenship while simultaneously helping them learn important technology skills. But perhaps more importantly, like my dad did for me over 20 years ago, by connecting your students with their own digital portfolios, you will be allowing them to compose a narrative that will not only inform your own assessment of student growth and achievement, but will leave a legacy of learning and who they have become years after leaving your classroom.

    Einstein, Albert (1879-1955)
    Do not worry about your difficulties in mathematics, I assure you that mine are greater.

    Dirac, Paul Adrien Maurice (1902-1984)
    Mathematics is the tool specially suited for dealing with abstract concepts of any kind and there is no limit to its power in this field.

    Egrafov, M.
    If you ask mathematicians what they do, you always get the same answer. They think. They think about difficult and unusual problems. They do not think about ordinary problems: they just write down the answers.

    What We Do at GoodCall

    At GoodCall, we believe in something simple: the best decisions are backed by data.

    Today, that data isn’t always available – and when it is, it’s often incomplete, blocked by paywalls or required account signups. We want to change that.

    From scholarships to college rankings and beyond, we’re liberating information. And we’re not only giving you more of it. We’re making it more accessible, more digestible, and more adaptable to your unique needs. We’re making it easier for consumers like you to make smart decisions – for your wallet and your life.

    We want to shift the flow of today’s information exchange. That means we won’t ask you to pay for our resources and tools, and we won’t ask for your personal data without proving our value first. So take a look around, see what we have to offer, and start making good calls today.
