Tutor Pace recently launched a new diagnostic tool that covers both SAT and ACT tests for students to practice before appearing for their exam. It is a most comprehensive and powerful tool to find out students strengths and weaknesses which actually help teachers and students to know where the students are struggling.
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.
