So, what is InterestID?
InterestID is a student interest and lesson discovery tool that allows students to express their interests and provides teachers with standards-aligned lessons on topics they know their students love.
Students can like and dislike items within categories such as sports, movies, books, music, food and gadgets. If they do not see a certain interest, they can add it in the tool – these recommendations help us determine which lessons or editions to create.
As a teacher, you are able to view the interests of your students in a summary that displays the top liked categories, most popular interests within those categories, and recommended lessons based on those interests. Interest summaries can be viewed for individual students or classes as a whole, and even track changes over time! With this knowledge, teachers can confidently select lessons or editions of lessons they are sure their students will enjoy.
We want to thank you for your excitement around the InterestID tool and for encouraging your students to voice their interests! It is such a joy to see so many students expressing their interests and, as a result, so much engagement in the classrooms we visit. Watch out 4 million, here we come!
