We have Aimsweb, which suddenly came into place during the summer a couple of years ago. Some teachers have been piloting it, now most teachers will be using it. We have had Lexia--some licenses for early, some primary, some intermediate- for several years. We've been encouraged to move to the web based version, but haven't yet. We have used DEStreaming and DEScience--elementary and middle--for a few years. It's now catching on much more than before with most 3-5 teachers and half of the 6-8 teachers using DEScience. All teachers use and like DEStreaming, although getting it all set up right was a struggle for us. We also use Type to Learn 4 with students starting with some in grade 2.

We are getting an increased number of request for subsriptions to various products. Some of the ones that have come in are
EdHelper? Brain Pop? Study Island? Aimsweb?
We are trying to work on a process for selection and funding of such resources.
Would love to learn which ones people are using which people are finding most used. Also what process you are using to select and fund these in your district.
This year we chose Atomic Learning and Nettrekker. (not much systemic use yet)
A few years ago we had United Streaming.
We still have a subscription to RM Math (which is not only web 2.0)
I don't believe many of these belong under technology budget, but since they need technology to support them, I think we can help people make good choices.
Any feedback would be helpful.
