3 ways to use Boddle for remote/distance learning

Educators, below you'll find three ways to use Boddle as an effective remote/online learning tool to supplement what would have been in-class lessons/activities (feel free to forward this to teachers in your network).

1. Assignments & Targeted Practice

Boddle is fully-adaptive, self-paced, and tailors practice items and activities to the right level for each individual student.

However, there are often instances where an educator would like to assign specific math skills and/or topics to students— especially in a remote learning situation.

You can assign specific math skills to students using Boddle's Assignment Tool for:

  • Targeted practice
  • Exit tickets
  • Unit assessments, and
  • Quizzes as assignments

All of Boddle's assignments can be customized by the number of questions or by a specific amount of time. Timed assignments help emulate timed assessments that take place in the classroom.

When assignments are complete, they will show up fully graded for educators with detailed reports on student responses down to each individual question.

2. Identify & Address Gaps Remotely — Learning Gaps Report

Most (if not all) adaptive and personalized learning products in the market lack the 1-on-1 facilitation and instruction that teachers provide when students encounter a skill that they are struggling to tackle, or if they have gaps in learning.

Using Boddle's Learning Gaps report, educators can identify what skill students are struggling with, as well as which foundational skill is causing that gap in understanding, allowing them to quickly focus their time where it is needed most.

We recommend setting up online conferencing (such as Zoom/Google Hangouts) with your students to close the distance that remote learning brings.

3. Live Monitoring — Live Feed

One of the biggest challenges that educators face with remote/distance learning is not knowing what their students are working on. It's usually a big enough challenge in the classroom with so many students to one teacher, and its only deepened in a remote learning situation.

To help, Boddle comes with a Live Monitoring tool that shows you which students are online, what skill they're working on, their performance, and how long they've been working on each problem— which makes it perfect for remote learning.
