The first thing you’ll need to know to get started with Socrates is where to login. Teachers, students and parents login at the link below with your user name and password.   If you do not have one, you can choose to create an account first.

Kids accounts are created by a parent or teacher.  Once their account is created, the kids are able to login.  If they forget their password, the parent or teacher can reset it.

How to use Socrates for students

Kids use Socrates to practice, play, and grow.  Once a student account is created by a parent or teacher, they are able to login and get started.   Socrates will automatically adjust the content presented to the student based on their capabilities  – choosing what they should practice, unless  an educator has assigned homework.

Student accounts in Socrates are lifetime learning records.  Student data is maintained year to year, school to school, and even at home.  It does not reset as they go up in grades, but rather is a continual learning journey.  A single student can be added to multiple classrooms and multiple command centers if they have many teachers using Socrates.

Socrates makes learning fun!  Parents, teachers and students can watch this video to learn how to use the student platform.
