How I Use It
I would use this particular app as a supplement to U.S. History course information on the Cuban Missile Crisis. The app provides a countdown clock to the final day of the Cuban Missile Crisis. Students act as President Kennedy and are faced with a number of decisions, each one of which can lead to a different outcome. This app is a great way to deepen knowledge of all of the different issues within the Cuban Missile Crisis. This could also be utilized in a Government class to address the variety of issues faced by government leaders and how one small change can snowball into a completely different conclusion.
Overall, this app has a lot of potential for use in a classroom. I love the fact-based and historical perspectives contained within it. Students will gain a new understanding of the Cuban Missile Crisis as well as the variety of decisions faced by government leaders and how those decisions, even when they seem inconsequential, can have dramatic results.
