How I Use It
In my teaching, I would use this app to reinforce countries names and locations on a map. This app is best for practicing and memorizing the names of countries and their geographic location on a map. It is a very basic app, so almost any student can pick it up and play it. I would recommend using this app as a supplement to instruction, in which students can practice identifying North American countries and then select a country to do further research on.
My Take
If I was looking to help my students memorize North American countries and locations, then this app would be great. But other than that, I am not impressed with this app. I feel it would better serve students if there were some facts, pictures, or unique features of each nation for students to learn. Also, it would be interesting for students to have access to special traditions within each country that students can explore.
