    Study Island

    Our district had a presenter visit our school one hour after school last spring to show us the Study Island program. We were not impressed and so far have not purchased it. Although there were catchy little games, the sole purpose is for standarized test practice. Hmmm, is that what school is becoming? A testing practice center? When does the REAL learning take place? When does the FUN in learning and discovering for the sheer joy of it take place? I am so disgusted with the emphasis on a high-stakes testing score. The only reason I look for forward to the TWO full weeks of testing in our district is to not have to write lesson plans for those weeks. Sad, huh?! As for Study Island, we voted it off..it was no Survivor.
