How I Use It
This app would be an asset to any science classroom. I could see using to help supplement your teaching of astronomy or other space related topics. You are able to showcase photos to help the students get the visual they need which I find very helpful when teaching my special education students. In addition I could see using this on a weekly basis to help the students keep up to date on what is going on with current missions, the international space station and other space related news. I like how they go into detail about each mission which could be used if you had a group of students do a report on each and then present to the class.
My Take
This is a great interactive visual app that provides up to date information on the space/nasa community. Teachers could use this to help supplement their teaching and provide visuals for the students to help secure their understanding of the topic. I like the photographs they use and the fact that they videos, and in-depth knowledge on each mission. I would recommend this app even if it’s for students to explore on their own.
