How I Use It
I have used Colar mix to help gain interest using the rotating ball. It is a nice way to have students summarize concepts or demonstrate what they learned from a lesson.
I believe this is a neat tool to gain interest or student buy-in; however, for high order thinking and understanding it is more of a play tool. I love the creativity of it and the virtual nature of the app, but other than the globe and ball, most of the drawings you can use are for playtime.
