Discover a powerful, adaptive, personalized learning program in Knewton. Knewton delivers video or written content to students in math, science, or English and then asks multiple-choice questions. The next selections are based on the student's responses and those of similar students. Knewton figures out what each student knows and how each student learns best. So the more the student uses Knewton, the more Knewton learns about the right speed and sequencing to serve up the content. The material is for grades 6 - 12 in Math, grades 4 - 6 in English Language Arts, grades 9 - 11 in Biology, and soon Knewton will have materials for History. At the time of this review, the FAQ also stated that you will soon be able to upload your own content. Sign up is with email or a Gmail account and easy for both students and teachers. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. You could always view them at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): adaptations (17), DAT device agnostic tool (199), differentiation (47), tutorials (47)

In the Classroom

Introduce Knewton on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Students can sign up using the URL for your Knewton class, or by you putting in either their email, Knewton username, or account information. There is a very detailed FAQ section where you can learn all about the teacher dashboard and monitoring student progress. You could use this tool as a daily bell ringer assignment or at a center. You could also assign this for homework. Once students finish the selection, the tool will present another to work on right away. You may want to specify how many selections you want the students to complete on Knewton in each class session. Knewton will allow you to continue in the same area the next time you sign in. Working on these assignments through the year will improve your students' skills and literacy in Math, English, and Biology. Remember, History will be added soon. Post the link to Knewton on your class web page for students to use at home.

Find a very simple, but very useful file for asking questions in (mathematics) classes. Even though these are labeled for math, they are open-ended questions that will work well for any subject. The one page PDF file provides questions to help students rely on themselves to provide answers, solve problems, and connect (mathematical) ideas.

tag(s): questioning (31)

In the Classroom

Don't skip over this one if you teach math! These questions are good to use in many discussions on many topics. Print this file and include it with all (math) lesson plans. Take one section per month and focus on using those questions with students. Share with your peers as part of your professional discussions in questioning techniques. Include this print out with your Meet the Teacher activities to help parents understand how they can use questions to help students understand math.
