How I Use It
I could see using this product to help support the study of various countries around the world. What makes it work so well is that it is interactive and offers the students the challenge of working their way around the world while learning about each country and culture. I could see myself using this when the students had downtime and create a classroom challenge out of it to see who could complete the tour of the world the fastest. The only problem I experienced is that it appeared to have audio but I could not for the life of me figure out how to use it.
My Take
Overall I really enjoyed using this app and could see myself using it in the classroom. It offers fantastic graphics and fun challenges all while learning about the world. I liked how when you complete a challenge it offers you information on the topic. For example I found the word Mummy and it gave me several snippets of information on mummies and the role they play in Egypt. It would be a great tool for any classroom!
