Kids Love It!
Kommentare: My overall experience has been good. I feel that it has been a good review program in math and language arts for the kids. I love that I can monitor their progress and reassign skills that they need to work on.
Vorteile: What I like most about this software is that the kids love going on it. The kids are learning math and language arts but then get rewarded with games, cards, etc. It is a win, win situation.
Nachteile: There isn't much that I didn't like about the software. It does seem like they play games a lot, but it can be controlled, so it's not much of a problem.

Socrates is Always Growing and Changing
Kommentare: Our experience with Socrates has been great and I love that Socrates is always willing to adapt and change the software to make it fit the needs of elementary students and teachers.
Vorteile: I love the benchmarking feature! It is really helpful to teachers to be able to benchmark students in an untimed, computer scored manner :)
Nachteile: I would like to see the software include a reteaching feature, like when a student answers a question wrong, it will reteach or teach them the skill.

Popular learning game.
Kommentare: Socrates has been easy to use and our personal service has been great!
Vorteile: High interest level for my students. They love the games. All students are able to use it independently.
Nachteile: The students can earn the rewards too easily and need more of a challenge before being rewarded and being able to play games.

Kommentare: The students can access this program at home and they are learning as they turn to this program rather than a video game at home and hopefully this will happen more and more. They love competing with their peers for the most tickets & medals. Each day they want to see who received the most tickets, so it is up on the board every morning and the winner gets to turn their card to purple (which is an "I went above and beyond" token).
Vorteile: What I like most about Socrates is that the students love it and it keeps them engaged. They love the challenge of working towards tickets. They use their whiteboards on the math questions and this keeps their minds going.
Nachteile: Maybe a little less game time, work more problems before playing. The questions are fun for the students so a lot of game time is not necessary.

Vorteile: This product makes it very easy for an educator to individualize learning in the classroom. With numerous levels for learning and achievement, students can learn at their own pace. Multimedia resources astounding, teachers are able to use specific targeted sources for whole group instruction as well. Excellent product!
Nachteile: It would be nice if this was a comprehensive SLM.

Great for Instructional Support
Vorteile: My students LOVE to solve math problems and earn tokens to play the games. They have so much fun that they don't even realize they're "learning" while they play.
Nachteile: The initial log-in page is very busy and I've been told by parents before that they are confused and unable to help their child because they don't know what to click on to begin the program.

Kommentare: Great to use in my classroom as a treat or brain break in my classroom.
Vorteile: The software was very easy to learn and implement in my classroom. When an issue did arise, the customer support "chat" was very to use and they were very responsive and friendly!
Nachteile: The software is very fun for the students, but it is very easy just play and not much learning, when some students realize they can just guess randomly until they get it right to continue playing the games.

A New Approach to Tech Supported Learning

Nachteile: It is new and therefore not complete. I am looking forward to their progress.

Nachteile: I haven't notice anything negative until now.
