How I Use It
This is a wonderfully engaging review tool that kids beg to play. I put review material into this game format and kids play at home far more often than any other tool I have tried. Kids come in and brag about being at the top of the leaderboard. Kids even play after taking the assessment on the topics. I also had kids create their own Zondles where they had to write the question and come up with 3 legitimate distractors. Kids really had to think about whether their choices were too far fetched and possibly make the actual answer too easy to identify.
My Take
I love this product. I was sad to hear that it would no longer be in existence. However, we have now been informed that it will continue to exist with a rather high yearly fee. I am concerned my school administrators will not support this at this proposed fee.
