Creative 21st Century Scholar
Peg is using tech the right way. The amount of really cool web resources in existence is overwhelming. Professional Development workshops, both in district & out, have always preached to take on one to three new ideas per year. Peg first started integrating xtramath.org, a great fact fluency tool. This year, she moved to frontrowed.com an addaptive & comprehensive grade level math program. Another site she is considering is adaptedmind.com/.
Kudos to Peg Perry
(Each issue will feature a new staff member or a new idea.)
