How I Use It
I would use this product as a tool to differentiate learning for each individual student. It can be used with any child or teen at their level as I have explained earlier. The more self-directed a student is, the more they can learn - this is true with any given learning situation. If a student is not motivated for whatever reason, they will not be self-directed, and therefore will not learn as much.
My Take
This project application can be used at all levels and for many different purposes and students. I must admit, it took me a while to get the hang of it and I needed to see many examples of it in action, but there are so many resources available, this was not a problem! It can be used to introduce a simple concept creatively which is much more stimulating and attention getting than the basic slide by slide approach of Powerpoint. Yet, it can also be used in a much more complex fashion, taking a concept and expanding to much wider ideas. Most importantly, once students understand how it works, they can use it on their own to create their own learning with any topic and take off!
