This product is useful as an extension of a great lesson.
The current scientific questions will be a great way for students to be able to analyze and think outside of the box. The strengths do outweigh the limitations, but I will only be able to use this program once in a while because it doesn’t cover a wide range of topics. Teachers are able to assign lesson models with this app and be able to assess students’ progress. Some strengths of this program as a teaching tool is that it contains Critical-thinking activities, interactive models, current scientific questions, and teacher feedback availability. Some limitations is that it can only be used with certain topics and also if used mainly in the classroom it will require students to have access to electronic devices.
How I Use It
I might use this tool occasionally when the topic we are discussing in class is one of the topics available in this app. I will have my students work on the critical-thinking activities which I am able to assess through my end. They will also watch and play with the interactive models of that topic in order to better grasp the concept.
