Because Kiddom works with Google, this may be the best LMS alternative for schools that like Classroom, but need more.
Jenna Rodgers, Sep 2, 2017

Kiddom’s platform connects directly to a library packed with videos, quizzes, activities and more. They do all of the heavy lifting so you can focus on student progress and commit less time to scouring the internet for something useful, and more time building a real individual picture of what your students look like, their strengths, and where they need support.

With the rollout of Kiddom’s Planner, teachers now have a way to lay out basic lesson goals and modify the roadmap for small groups or individual students as needed.

Teachers can create just-in-time lesson plans or be prepared for future inquiry, all right from Kiddom.

Courtney Fitt, Apr 19, 2017

What Kiddom humbly does so well is to make teachers the driving forces behind blended learning classrooms, taking the guesswork out of how to get started. The idea of “technology as a babysitter” is over; you actively set the tasks, you control the lessons, you interpret your students and their pacing, and you use technology as the champion of personalized learning that we know it can be.
Courtney Fitt, Mar 24, 2017

It’s no secret that we love Kiddom. What you may not know quite yet, however, is how easy their app will make your life, between the data presentation, planner, timeline, and content library!
Michael Karlin, Mar 12, 2017

Kiddom provides an excellent tool to plan curriculum, modify individual pathways, use premium content, and analyze student learning.

Jason Choi, Mar 10, 2017

To the frustrated student and burnt-out teacher, Kiddom represents a much-needed paradigm shift - and schools have been responding very well.

Teachers, there is a new player in the educational market. This FREE resource is extraordinarily easy-to-use.

You won’t want to miss out on this spectacular, classroom enhancing platform.
Abbas Manjee, Feb 6, 2017

Here are my three recommendations for a free alternative to Google Classroom. One of the things that Kiddom offers to try to make itself stand out is an integrated search for assignment materials. For example, fourth grade teachers can search for mathematics assignments that are aligned to standards of their choosing.
Angie Kalthoff, Jan 24, 2017

The addition of high-end teaching tools including premade lessons, ones that can be modified and/or the option to create your own, as well as collect essential data are now the norm. So what apps should you have in your digital toolkit? Here are 6 apps that every teacher should know about.
Priyanka Gupta, Jan 11, 2017

Kiddom is one good tool to be incorporated in the teaching and learning practice. It saves teachers from having to “recreate the wheel” over and over again by leveraging pre-made, standards-aligned assessments.

Today, teachers want to call out student strengths and weaknesses, accomplishments and areas of improvement, as aligned with the standards that their school mission is built on. That requires a detailed picture of what students have learned.
Abbas Manjee, Oct 17, 2016

Teachers need more education technology companies thoughtfully creating and providing SEL content and services. And they need schools to provide the professional development they need to learn how to effectively weave SEL into curriculum.
Emily Liebtag, Sep 19, 2016

Kiddom is a free platform teachers can use to think about student work from both an academic and social emotional learning lens. Using activities from different sites (such as CK-12, Khan Academy, and CommonLit) or teacher-created activities, teachers can integrate and provide students feedback on both SEL competencies and academic standards.
Michael Karlin, Sep 13, 2016

When I sat down to discuss Kiddom with their team, the first thing that came up was their educational philosophy, and why they see Kiddom as being beneficial. “Anyone could have created Kiddom, because there are so many teachers suffering from the same issues” says Kiddom Chief Academic Officer Abbas Manjee, a former NYC teacher.
Monica Burns, Sep 4, 2016

Kiddom is a free platform that uses data on student performance to help teachers create personalized learning experiences for each child in their classroom. Gathering and acting on formative assessment data is such an important role of teachers...

Nick Grantham, Aug 23, 2016

With access to Kiddom’s student mastery analytics the ability to make informed and sound instructional decisions based on real data is easy. There is no trawling through multiple sources, numbers, papers and stats. It is clear, it is visual and it is delightfully intuitive. And this is what real personalized learning looks like!
The Edvocate, Aug 22, 2016

See, what Kiddom creators got right is this: most teachers are haphazardly using multiple resources, aggregating on their own, and using a less-than-stellar grade book option because it’s all they have at their disposal. All of that takes up too much time and can frankly lead to some understandable frustration. Kiddom cuts right to the heart of that conundrum by consolidating resources and placing everything a teacher needs for lesson planning, grading, classroom organization, student tracking, and assessments in a central, easy-to-use hub.
Michael Karlin, Aug 16, 2016

Overall, I believe Kiddom is an excellent resource for teachers and students who are using standards-based grading in their classroom. The interface is extremely user-friendly and the data visualizations of student achievement make it easy to make informed, data-driven decisions about assignments and instructional content.
Ann Leghorn, Aug 1, 2016

More time with students is always a win. This upcoming school year, I’ll be able to start strong and waste less time creating and updating spreadsheets and 'trackers.' I encourage all educators to do themselves a favor and do the research. Figure out what education technology tools are out there trying to solve the problem you’re up against. Don’t recreate the wheel if you don’t have to.
Monica Burns, Jul 27, 2016

Preparing for back-to-school? On the hunt for a new tool? Kiddom is a personalized learning platform that helps teachers monitor student progress. Earlier this year I featured Kiddom on my site after viewing a demo to see it in action.
Derek Newton, Jul 26, 2016

Kiddom, the standards-based grading platform for teachers, gets an impressive once-over from Jennifer Gonzalez, the boss over at Cult of Pedagogy. That’s high praise and that’s why, for teachers, Kiddom may be worth a strong look.
Angela Watson, Jun 1, 2016

Kiddom allows teachers to assign work that is best suited to each student’s learning style AND tracks student progress, all in one place... there are lots of activities to choose from and finding the right one for each student is greatly simplified.
Richard Byrne, Jun 1, 2016

One of the things that Kiddom offers to try to make itself stand out is an integrated search for assignment materials. Teachers can also create assignments from scratch by uploading materials and or importing them them Google Drive.
