How I Use It
I use it to teach online researching to my students. We learn about validating online sources, practice validating, take a few quizzes in between the practices to make sure they are understanding, then move on to learning about databases and how to use those. It is a great tool for keeping all students on the same page and seeing their progress and understanding throughout the lesson. You can also have students who were absent, or who might need the lesson a second time for understanding, go through the activities on their own.
My Take
This is one of the best teaching tools I have used to date. It offers so many options for presentation, engagement, teaching and testing. Love it!!
