MobyMax contacted me about a month ago and asked if I would try out their Moby Tablet with my students and write a review. I already use MobyMax in my classroom and was happy to try it out.
In case you haven't heard about MobyMax, it is an online K-8 curriculum. The students take a placement test as their first session. My students rotate through most days of the week for extra practice at their independent level. Several of my students really enjoy sending me messages through the system.
The first thing I noticed about the Moby Tablet was the aluminum back. I have routines in my room for my students to take care of my computers, but it is nice to see such a sturdy design.
I also like the Sync & Lock features that come with the tablet. I have had students try to use school technology for non-educational entertainment. I position the laptop screens so I can see what my students are doing. I found it more difficult to monitor on a device with a smaller screen. By using Sync & Lock, I can make sure technology is used for assignments.
What questions do you have about using MobyMax with your students? I'm happy to share what I know.
