    Classroom Challenge – myBrainshark – January 2014


      Frontloading is a processing of making information available to students prior to teaching.  It can be used to set purpose, introduce new information, provide re-teaching strategies, present procedures for completing a task, share generic knowledge, etc.  By frontloading information you demonstrate respect for differentiation, give students the opportunity to learn at their own pace and build their skill level in preparation for classroom activities.  This allows the teacher to facilitate students finding greater success and providing strategies transferable to the academic setting.

      myBrainshark is a technology tool that can be used by teachers to frontload information and by students to present information to demonstrate mastery learning.
