How I Use It
This could be used as a support for a lesson. Students will need some background prior to playing related to shapes and structures or as they play, they need a way to think through the cause and effects of their designs.
My Take
A fun platform. Endless creative opportunities for kids to explore. Could be really fun to use to model the thinking process as a teacher for the students, then allow students to come articulate and demonstrate their thinking at the smartboard in front of the whole class. Additionally, students could work in pairs or small groups to construct, this would add an interactive element to the process. Finally, students could work individually to determine their best design for homework, then return to share with the class.
