How I Use It
I used this product in both whole group, teacher-led instruction as well as individual, independent stations for learners. I have used to introduce topics, to review topics, and to assess learning. STudents can easily be responsible for watching and quizzing on a topic independently. They were assigned to watch it in a small group and to document learning with quiz.
Internet bandwidth may be an issue on some buildings but we were fine. Must use headphones for noise could be an issue in small groups.
Potential overuse is an issue. Not something you want use everyday and it does not track data.
This is a great tool for teaching and it covers a large area of topics! I love the humor and the characters: content is presented very clearly and assessment is directly related to learning.
It could serve students and teaching better if it were to track progress/ remediation needs for students. Also, incorporating more text-based evidence within the assessments would be ideal.
