Connecting DreamBox School Progress With Your Home Account
Recently, a customer wrote me this e-mail:
Thank you for the free 14-day trial of your software. My daughter uses it in school and loves it! I’d subscribe, but I’d hate to see her do the same work twice. Is there a way to make it so that her school work matches her home account?”
When DreamBox Learning first arrived on the scene, our software was designed with home usage in mind. Nowadays though, more and more schools are using DreamBox Learning in their classrooms. For these reasons, we decided that combining the two services was not only inevitable, but necessary. And, we came up with two ways of doing this.
The first, is through our “School Plus Home” version of the DreamBox Math Classroom. Schools that subscribe to this level of service receive login and password information, which their students can use at home. Home usage is virtually identical to a paid account, complete with a Parent Dashboard that shows their child’s progress. However, any work they do at home, is reflected in their school progress – and vice versa.
If your school is not using School Plus Home, we can still link your child’s home subscription to their class work. In fact, if your child has made significant progress at home, we can even apply this progress to their school account, ensuring that they don’t have to needlessly repeat any lessons. You’ll still have access to your child’s progress through your Parent Dashboard, only now, this progress will include the work they’re doing at school. All you have to do is contact Customer Support with the name of your child, the school that they attend, and the name of their teacher, and we’ll do the rest!
Linking your child’s school progress with a home account is a great way enhance a child’s math education, by providing a fun and consistent learning environment. It also provides parents with the tools they need to assess their child’s instructional level in math, and even provide more hands-on assistance if a student is struggling with a particular concept. Definitely a win-win situation!
