How I Use It
I used this in Earth Science to assign the students a different geography regions. It was a great way for students to look at geography and science together. I had group of student each take one quiz and create a mini lesson covering the 20 questions it asks so students could take the quiz and pass it. It worked well for students to create and focus in on what their classmates should known.
My Take
Overall the graphics are great and really engaged the students. I am not sure that I would use it just as a quiz feature but I did like using it as a starting point for student projects and differentiation. They groups were able to choose the one they wanted with ease. Overall it is a pretty good product but there is not way to monitor results except to have students screen shot the results and email them. Some kind of log-in would be nice.
