How I Use It
In a computer lab. I demonstrated how the main components work on the web application. I told the students that it was a challenging game and that excited them as well. As they were using it, some of the students got stuck and asked their friends who were at higher levels for a quick tip/help! The site works well and I will use it for future classes.
My Take
This is a great game that actually makes students think. Gifted learners feel challenged and motivated to keep going onto the higher levels. I loved that 98% of the class enjoyed using this program. Students have told me that they played it at home because they wanted to "beat the game."
