Moby Max Tablet

Moby Max sent us a tablet to use in our classroom!  If you have never heard about Moby Max you can read my post – here – about why I love it!

 
I was so excited to come home to this package! My students use and LOVE MobyMax for various reasons but being older one of my favorite uses is for test prep!
 
I knew as soon as I got my hands on this tablet what I would do with it. 

My students were SO grateful and excited to get their hands on more technology as well! We have 1 iPad, 1 barely working computer and my teacher computer – so any techology is greatly appreciated! 

We use MobyMax for 1/2 of our computer time because I can track what they do and I like the limited use of rewards time for practice – it works for us. 
 
 
 
This tablet stays in our room for Title 1/RTI time.  It rotates through students everyday and they focus solely on test prep for this time.  They can choose either language arts or math but it has to be test prep.  Sadly, they need mulitple choice practice and I don’t feel like they get enough in class.  At least, it is on the computer and they earn game time for test practice, plus I can start this early in the year and get more students ready faster without piling on a bunch of test prep.
 
 
Did I mention the tablet is also able to support a browser and has apps?! I’m always encouraging students to research quetsions and find their own answers well with another tablet that is possible.  The calculator has also come in handy quite a bit!
   
 
The tablet does take a little getting use to at first since I’m only used to iPads but the students and I figured it out very quickly (them more so than me and I’m only 23!)  It really fits in well in our class and the tablet aspect has really helped me differentiate my teaching during small group time with focused test prep for students!

    Hi there;

    I been thinking about purchasing the MobyMax tablets but I have question
    Do you need an active subscription for the tablets to work($99 a year subscription)? Or once you purchase the tablet you are good to go and no need to pay the yr subscription?

    Wow, cool post. I'd like to write like this too – taking time and real hard work to make a great article… but I put things off too much and never seem to get started. Thanks though. tabletki poronne
