How I Use It
When we have extra time in class or when students are using the iPads in class, Science360 is one of the options for students to choose to work on. It works especially well if you have headphone available for student use.
My Take
This is a great app when students have some time for independent practice. Students select videos that interest them and watch them on their own. It would be great if students were required to fill out a form after watching the video answering basic questions like, "what was the video about?" and "one thing I learned was _______".
