How I Use It
I used it to introduce a lesson so that students had a visual that a book or worksheet cannot provide. Show the image or video and then ask a few questions about it. If the students don't know the answers it is easy to show it again. Then it is easy to refer to the visual over and over. As a formative assessment let the students write about or draw a picture of what they learned.
My Take
I used this app with students from grades 7 to 12 in every science class imaginable and it is easy to adjust the learning level using the same video or picture. The images are stunning and varied. This app helps with the introduction of a topic or as a summary; it all depends on how creative you can be. Your facility needs a good internet connection though because it can take a lot of bandwidth.
