How I Use It
I would use this in teaching about science. It has virtual world recordings that are engaging and full of information. It shows the recording and also has a talk-over for the information along with the text. The only thing I did not like about that app is that the teacher had no control over the app. In other apps similar to this one, the teacher could "lead" the students and tell them what to look at. However, this one is real-life recordings instead of just images which I think is more beneficial for learning and allows students to become more engaged.
My Take
I think this is a good teaching tool that could be used in a classroom. I think you could use it for science and possibly history. It is in real life time which makes it more engaging. It is a little slow at times and the image is not always the clearest. However, it lets students be able to interact with a real life recording and is not just images.
