What’s It Like? CueThink introduces kids to the “thinklet”: a stepped-out solution to a math problem. Each thinklet guides students through four steps for solving problems — Understand, Plan, Solve, and Review. Kids can use in-app tools, including a highlighter and a scratch pad, as they work through each step of the process. In the Solve step, they can even create a video to show their solution. When kids finish a thinklet, they can share it with their teacher and their classmates, giving others a chance to see their solutions and provide feedback.
Pros: Kids can share ideas and collaborate while solving problems, which makes for a fully engaging and empowering learning experience.
Cons: The sample activities bank is still somewhat limited.
Bottom line: CueThink is an innovative, community-based platform that helps kids plan, strategize, and collaborate.
