The season of joy, giving, and hot cocoa is upon us, and we at ScootPad would like to extend our warmest wishes to you and your loved ones this holiday season. As a reminder, we will be on a holiday break from December 24 to January 4 so our team members can celebrate with their families. We'll be back and ready to help as always starting January 7th.
Educators change the world one student at a time. Therefore, having a platform which can adapt to the needs of every student and help fill knowledge gaps is super important. This blog post will address how to use ScootPad effectively in a SPED environment.
With the advent of apps used both inside and outside of the classroom, comes the need to track student learning, or how much time students spend on these apps and devices towards learning. Below we explain why "goals" is the metric we suggest you use instead of "screen time" to spur students on to mastery!

Enhancing the student experience is of paramount importance to us at ScootPad since it is so critical to student success and in helping them achieve mastery.

ScootPad detects when a student is struggling and automatically scaffolds content in real-time providing the student with additional practice in prerequisite concepts. This automatic remediation happens with no involvement from the teacher and seamlessly within the students' adaptive practice. In this post, we answer some of the most frequently asked questions about automatic remediation and behind-the-scenes scaffolding:
It's go time! With students starting to fill the halls, ScootPad wants to ensure that you have everything you need for a successful year! In this blog post, we focus on the tools and improvements that help admins get their schools/districts setup and ready for success!
