How I Use It
I use it to teach about atlases, geography, culture, etc by projecting it for the class. I use it for small group and individual projects. It is easy to use, engaging, and accessible to all of my students regardless of ability. I even recommend it to parents for home/homework use.
My Take
Learning should always be this engaging. This atlas has all of the general atlas features packaged in a colorful and fun package with all the right extras. It is searchable by not only moving the Earth around, zooming, and tapping but also by region, country, and feature (ie fox). Articles can be favorited and shared (email etc). Actual pictures and pronunciations are also included. There are too many features to name. This can be used in the classroom or at home. I highly recommend this product.
