Technology Allows Interactive Learning
Edcite is a web-based platform for teachers to design interactive assignments with customizable content and quality Common Core resources. It is built by teachers, for teachers to tackle the classroom challenges of today and strengthen the quality of education tomorrow. Edcite is about enabling teachers to engage their students better. Edcite believes that this is key to improving student learning and reducing teacher workload. The lessons are typically designed to be formative in nature to help the student reinforce concepts through non-repetitive practice combined with immediate and helpful feedback. I think this could be a very valuable resource for you as we integrate more technology into our lessons. Check it out!
