News in Levels: How to Use - For Teachers - 6 views

  •

    - playing the media over and over during a subsequent lesson, until every student understands (Reading, item 6, 2013.06.04).

    It doesn't explain the leveling system.

  •  
    "Claims that tablets will revolutionize the learning experience often go hand-in-hand with a push for more digital textbooks, but the Pearson survey showed that students don't often link the two. While most students perceived an educational value to tablets, only 35 percent said they preferred digital editions to print editions, and only about half of those preferred tablets to other digital devices" (Keving Kiley, 2011.05.25, ¶8, retrieved 2011.05.30).
