How I Use It
Pet Bingo is an engaging, interactive app that provides opportunities for differentiation as students review and practhe ice basic computation skills of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Students enjoyed racing each other (on separate devices) to get the first "Bingo", then interacting with the virtual pet area as a reward. I would use this app for independent student practice and to provide differentiation.
My Take
I loved this app! It's ease of use and appealing graphics entice even the youngest of learners. As an educator, I appreciated the ability to easily create new users (vital for schools sharing iDevices among hundreds of students) and the opportunity to self-select computation choice and level. I also like how it shows the problem in horizontal and vertical format. The Report Card feature provides data for the teacher as well - bonus!
