How I Use It
This would be a great software to introduce to students before diving into topics like politics and persuasion. For ELL purposes, I find it helpful to show how people can be influenced by a variety of factors and that not keeping those factors in mind could be problematic when trying to persuade them. After introducing the concept with the software, students can then dive deeper into the subject and look for real life bills and situations to explore.
My Take
It's a very good opening tool for the chapter. Having constituents visualized with their own priorities listed can help students make better sense of concepts like perspectives and influences by providing something concrete.
