How I Use It
I used this as a test software in a tech class. The purpose of the assignment was to literally assess the educational application of the material. Students downloaded and tried the app and told me whether or not they found it to be useful and educational. Most agreed- this was an educational game that taught them about genetics and science. It worked VERY well with students who were already interested in high fantasy (dragons). This was an entertaining one to watch them work with as well- as opposed to some other options: students actually compared data and talked about what they learned as they learned.
My Take
I feel as if this would go over well in a science classroom for middle or high school students. I was shocked as how into it certain students were getting and would love to see that enthusiasm spread to a classroom setting.
