Study Island Update: Elementary

What is Study Island all about?
We are fortunate to be able to provide Study Island for our 2-6 grade students this year. Study Island is an online tool to help students prepare for the MAP. It is fun for kids because they are learning while playing engaging games. Students can access Study Island anywhere there is internet. It is great for teachers because you can customize review and practice for your students. You can retrieve all kinds of reports/data to help guide your instruction.

When should I use it?
Study Island is great for tutoring. It is wonderful for students to use as a resource at home. You can use your extra computer lab or mobile lab time for students to work on Study Island. It will become especially helpful after Christmas as we pull out all the stops with MAP prep.

How do I get started?
Each building has representatives that will attend Study Island training on Sept.22. They will in turn train their staff on a Monday in October during your building PD opportunities. The computer teachers are setting up the class lists and getting the program ready for you to use in the next few weeks.

Is this just one more thing I have to do?
Study Island is not one more thing, but rather a valuable resource to help you with things you are already doing such as tutoring and MAP prep. I will be sharing tips on how to best use Study Island with your students in the weeks to come. Right now.. just get in the groove of school and take a leisurely cruise to Study Island!

#personlizedlearning starts with voice and choice. A PBL is a great start. To get started, consider @drlorielliott book #pblanywhere that lays out how to go from standards to a PBL.

Excited to share my new PBL online course with you! Thanks @dbc_inc for this opportunity!

Our community unit came to life! We brainstormed wants & needs, planned, & created a community we would like to live in. This year we decided to take our plans to City Hall to share with the people in charge! @isd544otters @teacher2teacher @drlorielliott @DitchThatTxtbk

A short and sweet sesh on #PBL by @drlorielliott hosted by @dbc_inc with @burgessdave and @TaraMartinEDU It's validating to hear that so many others are taking #PBL and #inquiry and running with it!

“It's not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It's our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.”
