How I Use It
As a teaching tool, I would use it more as reinforcement after formal type lessons. I like that independent students are free to go through the map and choose if they want to do the videos, stories, songs or games. I also find the quizzes utilized throughout the app to be very helpful for assessment purposes. It could be better if it offered some type of progress report or check in order to support the data collected from the quizzes .
My Take
I work with special needs students on an individual basis. I find this app very good to teach and reinforce grammar skills. The students I work with like the cartoon type characters they interact with on the app. They especially like the songs and short videos that accompany the lessons.
