How I Use It
I used this app primarily for whole group learning and for student research. While learning about space, we would use the NASA app for visualization of space since students have difficulty with this concept. We would also use the videos so students could see a launch into space. I would allow students time to search this app to assist in finding information in NF writing and putting together information to share with the class on various aspects of space.
My Take
This is a great teaching tool as an informational component. I would use it to supplement student driven, hands-on activities and allow students time to utilize this for specific pieces of research. This app is great to use for whole class when looking at something that is teacher driven. It is also great to use when allowing students time to research information specifically geared toward an individual piece. This graphics are very good in helping the students understand abstract concepts about space.
