How I Use It
Often noise can get out of hand when a teacher is working with small groups. This app gives my students both an audio and visual reminder to the noise level within the classroom. As a class, we set a goal for the number of points that should be earned during a given amount of time. I project the app and it does the rest! I also use it to post the objectives for the particular lesson we are working on.
My Take
This product allows me to focus on the the small group I am working with rather than the noise level of the rest of the group. It needs to be projected horizontally in order to be able to post the objectives. It is a simple reminder that helps keep everyone focused including me.
