General
How I Use It
I use this app mainly for the images that NASA has to display. I usually use it with whole group instruction and pull up the images to display and then we have a large group discussion. I have also used the app as a research tool for my advanced learners as they can more easily navigate through it.
My Take
This is a great app for astronomy. NASA is always updating the information and pictures that are available. My students loved the visual images that were provided. There is a lot of information to decipher in this app and my ELLs, low literacy, and special needs students needed a lot of help with this app.
