Online Learning Tool: IXL - Math and English


We have used this tool in our district for a few years now. IXL offers standards-aligned practice and curriculum for grades K-12. I witnessed a lot of student success with this tool. IXL is not a free tool, but has been well worth it according to many of the teachers using IXL.

This tool works on virtually any device with a web browser and internet access.
