How I Use It
I teach the use of the print dictionary first and then the "E" version. The students are able to explore the App; learn to pronounce; and get the "word of the day". This creates active learning by creating discussions and increasing word vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension.
My Take
This App is is AWESOME! It allows tremendous flexibility based on the learners needs to experience, learn, & explore while meeting the NETS (National Educational Technology Standards) with CCSS (Common Core Student Standards).
