How I Use It
This app was easily accessible and fun to use in the classroom. I was able to set it up and begin using it immediately. The app featured different videos that gave students the experience of being there. I found this app to be very creative, educational and fun for the whole class.
My Take
I think this app is great for the classroom. During units that feature different places/ experiences, this app could be used to show the students what it's like in that said place. In addition to this, I found the app to be fun and interactive. Students enjoy being able to see through the eyes of someone else and can learn from the experiences of others.
