Skoolbo (Canadian version) is now available for those who are seeking practice in basic skills in Math or Literacy (building blocks). This is an online resource that provides a “game type” environment to practice honing down basic skills. Create your avatar and the program can take you through the skillsets (based on a set of pre-tests). Or a teacher can assign specific content where practice is needed. The program is device agnostic, meaning that it can be used on a desktop, laptop or ipad. (For iPads, you need to download the app.) Anywhere you have internet access, you can take advantage of the program.
Here is a short video with some highlights.
