Homework Helper

In Week 12 (03/19), over 300,000 students, parents, and teachers checked out Cosmeo.com, the new interactive “homework help tool” recently launched by Discovery Channel. School kids can access lesson-based games, a variety of homework help tools, and tons of research content including over 30,000 instructional video clips. Cosmeo also encourages ongoing learning through an incentive system where kids earn points for each activity which can then be redeemed for screen savers and other rewards. The $10 monthly subscription might be pricey for some households, but the site offers a free 30-day trial to prove its value.
