How I Use It
This app is useful for engaging or promoting student conversations in Science, for example as an introduction to a topic of study. The videos and graphics in the app are visually very engaging, but require significant (strong) bandwidth to use effectively in the classroom situation. It is very much a teacher presentation tool, for sharing with the whole class via an interactive whiteboard or projector.
My Take
A beautiful app, but doesn't really support in-depth engagement or research in science.
