Forest Park has been using a variety of ed-tech tools for some time including iXL, MobyMax, and Mathletics. They were in search of a comprehensive solution that was intuitive, adaptive, and engaging for their students while saving valuable time for their teachers. ScootPad was first introduced to Forest Park in late April for a district-wide trial, and after two months of comparing ScootPad with their existing tools, Forest Park decided to standardize on ScootPad for the upcoming school year.
“Forest Park Schools were using a variety of online tools to support their math instruction prior to choosing ScootPad. We wanted a solution that would help all students in grades K-8. Teachers piloted ScootPad during the Spring of 2015 while still using the other tools including IXL, MobyMax and Mathletics. In the end, ScootPad was chosen because the teachers LOVED the “scootorials”, the ability to add co-teachers, the ease of assigning remedial assignments and how clear it was which standard/grade a student was working on. We look forward to the implementation of ScootPad in the 2015-16 school year.” said Amanda Walsh, Director of Instructional Technology.
“We’ll take any opportunity to showcase ScootPad side-by-side with other tools. Trials like these allow schools & districts to ‘try-before-they-buy’ and they’re loving what they see in ScootPad compared to other solutions in the market.” said Bharat Kumar, CEO and Co-founder of ScootPad.
