FCSD sees success with MobyMax program


Fulton City School District students have used MobyMax, an online learning tool, to make personal gains in mathematics and English language arts.
 
The fun, interactive learning opportunity is offered to students throughout the district’s elementary and junior high schools to help them review skills and become more academically proficient. Renee Hendrickson, FCSD English language arts coach, said the K-8 program is also beneficial to some G. Ray Bodley High School classrooms because “it seems to reach the gamut” with writing, vocabulary, language, informational reading, literature and mathematical skills. While FCSD’s focus is now on ELA and math, Hendrickson said the district could expand offerings to include social studies and science.
 
FJHS teacher Kelly Stadtmiller said MobyMax perfectly matches up with Common Core learning. During the junior high school’s Instructional Enrichment Support bell each morning, students receive remedial or enrichment opportunities. Based on a student’s MobyMax performance, educational gaps are identified and review is then tailored to help students master skills.
 
MobyMax also provides test preparation, a progress track, goal review and games, among other highlights. Students may log into their MobyMax dashboard and continue learning at home.
