How I Use It
I regularly use this module in my computer lab to support the science general education curriculum. Students love to encounter Tim and Moby and enjoy the humor that is sprinkled throughout. Many of my students retain the information long after they have watched the video and I love the interactives that are available and the new GAME UP links to some of the games.
My Take
My students will choose to revisit the GAME UP games as well as to watch the videos in their own free choice time. For me, that demonstrates that it is not only an entertaining site but that it provides interaction in a positive learning environment which is favorable to kids.
