How I Use It
This app as mentioned before can be used for free time or reward time. It can be educational, but not very "school" educational. It is still a game.
My Take
This app, now only has a paid version for $7, is excellent to engage students. They have a single device on a screen, which is difficult to monitor (an iMac is much easier to monitor), so it's more for free time, or a reward. It can be used educationally, however the task needs to be specific and students will wander and fool around.
