I didn't get much time to see many negatives.
I fear that some students and teachers may not warm up to the Shmoot culture.

Verdict: Creates a fresh, relevant and innovative learning environment. The Shmoot style is compelling in speaking in kid-speak.

Usage: Credit Recovery; Supplement regular instruction across the curriculum with students in Grades 6-12

Strengths: Sense of humor (I loved the idea of PBIS on-line work in and of itself, but it was that much more engaging with the title "Don't be a jerk".

AP Prep...hooray! Very needed!!!

Suggestions for Improvement: If it doesn't exist, look for opportunities to build in on-roads for English Learners to frontload the content.

Verdict: It looks more engaging than what we are currently using.
