How I Use It
This app is useful for teaching students about the natural world around them, teaching them about animals and more in "real time." When I say "real time," I mean that the app has videos of the animals or whatever is being presented, so that the children can see how they interact in real life. I would use this app to help teach my students about wildlife and symbiotic relationships in the wild.
My Take
Overall, this app is very useful. One thing that made the app a little harder to use was that there were no arrows to signify where they should be looking but there were voice overs and writing throughout the preview of the wildlife world that the child is exploring.
