Using “Goals” vs “Screen Time” to Track Student Progress

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.

Student Experience: Best Practices

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.

Mastery Checks and Assessments Help Students Recall Knowledge!

ScootPad is dedicated to helping teachers teach smarter and not harder! To that end, we kicked off the school year sharing how your classroom can get started with Diagnostic Mode and Adaptive Practice. This helps REINFORCE the skills you are teaching.

Automatic Remediation detects and fills ALL knowledge gaps
