How I Use It
I used this with my middle school computer classes, to work on critical reading skills. We ran through scenarios individually and discussed the results as a group, The ability to play the dialogue was helpful for students with reading challenges. The interface was not completely intuitive and so I had to explain how to sort the statements at first.
My Take
The students really enjoyed it, and a few asked to do it again as a free choice activity. As a way to reinforce critical thinking and reading skills, I think it's an effective add-in. There's no way to track student use, and really not anything that could be used in assessments.
