Many teachers use Prodigy to engage students at the start or end of class, but it only takes a few clicks in your account to align those entry or exit tickets to your lessons.
Here’s how you can use Prodigy to preview or reinforce content!
Let’s assume you already know the “whys” behind gamification in education: why it works, why it’s backed by research, and why so many teachers love it.
Now, let’s focus on the next step: how to gamify your classroom.
While there are a range of different methods and opinions on the best ways to do it, we’ve performed the research and broken down five actionable steps to gamify education.
Using a digital tool for Response to Intervention (RTI) gives you another avenue to address your students’ trouble spots and skill deficits, while collecting data and engaging them.
You can use Prodigy to deliver specific content to certain students and check their progress on a cyclical basis:
It’s one of the toughest parts of teaching math.
But differentiating instruction for each student is one of the most effective methods of addressing their unique skills deficits.
You can use Prodigy to simplify math content differentiation. You’ll deliver specific in-game problems to each student — or distinct student groups — in three quick steps!
Many teachers cannot always satisfy the learning needs and speeds of all students — whether they be gifted, struggling or anywhere between – with the limited amount of time in today’s classrooms.
Administrators can introduce blended learning to address this issue. The practice is divided into six models, which each combine traditional teaching methods with different ways of using computerized instruction.
Discipline, scheduling, conflict resolution and meetings in general.
A principal’s calendar is typically packed with obligations that can shift focus from what is debatably your core duty: instructional leadership.
It’s an obvious challenge, but committing time to instructional leadership is significantly easier with clear strategies you can quickly reference.
Not all problems require the same approach.
For many students, knowing how to tackle certain problems starts by recognizing when to apply convergent and divergent thinking.
To help you effectively teach and reinforce these strategies, this convergent and divergent thinking guide will explain and explore:
For some teachers, it’s classroom bliss.
Students work together to investigate an authentic and nuanced problem. They build curriculum-aligned skills in the process. They’re rewarded with enhanced communication and problem-solving abilities.
But organizing and running suitable project-based learning (PBL) activities isn’t always easy, as the pedagogy is surrounded by debate and takes form in a range of exercises.
Like educators across the United States, those in Texas are under pressure to help students achieve positive scores on assessments.
We compared State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) results across 170 schools — 51 do not use Prodigy, while 119 have at least 20% of students on Prodigy.
