Technology Toolbox

This week I'm sharing some tools I've found that are helping me get rid of my paper piles.  

Today let's tackle the homework pile.  

Are you tired of getting piles of crumpled, coffee stained papers each day?  
Do you long for a desk that is free from straggling homework that didn't make it in on time?   
Then let me introduce you to... 

If you haven't heard of it you are in for a treat.

The kids love it because it lets them choose an avatar, chat with their friends on the class wall, and earn badges and rewards.  

I love it because it is aligned with the CCSS, grades their work, monitors their progress, and sends me a report! (what's not to love?)  

There are many more features to check out so scoot on over and take a look.  Oh, and did I mention that it's FREE!  There are premium features but the free account is amazing.  

Your kiddos can download the ScootPad App to use on their devices and if you are all fancy schmancy like Mrs. Wills you can use them on your classroom iPads!


  1. Oh my word. Where have I been?!?!?! I'm going to put this on my personal iPad right now and start playing!

  2. You are going to love it! I added a "fake" student when I added my class list so I could go in and see what my students see. It's a great way to do some formative assessing on the CCSS!
