How I Use It
This is a great tool for teacher led instruction in small group or whole class. I used it with a small group of ELL students who needed help researching information about their topic.
My Take
I think this a great tool for sharing information on the students' screens on ipads, ipods, computers or other devices. You can choose pre-made materials or create your own. I do not like that you cannot make changes to the pre-made presentations on their site. Overall, it's a very useful app and we will be using it often in our ICTs, computer labs, and other classroom as well!
