For example, even though I don’t have a 1:1 classroom, I still find it beneficial to test out 1:1-designed products, like the app FrontRowED (which provides differentiated and adaptive math instruction to students). FrontRowED is designed for a 1:1 classroom, but I have found that I can have my students rotate days in which they use it, or even use it as a differentiation tool. My students who understand and have mastered the current assignment simply use FrontRowED to challenge themselves with similar math concepts covered in class, or even get ahead for what will be covered. You never know how you might adapt a tool in your own classroom until you try it out.

Mr. Jones from Brentwood Elementary in East Palo Alto gave Front Row a shout out in EdSurge. Thanks Mr. Jones!
