How I Use It
I used this to allow students to record their work as they were showing me their understanding of specific punnett square problems as they traveled the room. They would record their voices as they problem solved the "problem" and draw out the solution. The students loved the interaction with the app and remained engaged throughout the lesson, showing excitement in their voices in the recording and an increase in accuracy (more than usual) in their responses.
Using this as an interactive teaching tool proved to increase the excitement and engagement level of the students as well as allowed me to be able to assess students without them feeling as though they were under my watchful eye.. Students also continued to ask to use it beyond the initial lesson because they could share with me their knowledge, without feeling like they were on the spot in front of their entire class. Adding a new dimension to their ability to express their understanding of material became motivating for many of them, which is a sign of a great teaching tool to me!
