How I Use It
We used it in a general music class with 5th, 6th, 7th graders. They had to work individually to explain how a note value works and then went into groups to combine the individual note values into a classroom "note value tree". Initially students were not excited about the lack of "game like" quality as their other apps that had been used. After they decided they liked"hearing" their own voice doing their explanations the excitement and engagement grew.
My Take
Good teaching tool for individual or for class engagement with visual & oral presentation. I liked the individual mark up and voice integration that was easy to use. Downside was some of my learners were slower learners so the initial start up dragged but that was not the apps fault. The more they used it became easier and it became a favorite.
