How I Use It
I use this instead of a powerpoint when teaching live now. During the pandemic I taught using this online, and students would log in and complete work with me helping those who struggled. On the whole it was a time-consuming process to create good interactive resources but you can copy slides from other places. Now with some students online and all of them with access to ipads in lessons, they do starters/intro work with me and then complete exercises on the software.
My Take
Easy to pick up, lots of scope to improve lessons (i.e. self marking, more interaction, use of card sorts and graphing calculators) but overall its fantastic if you put the effort in. Spend time over the summer trying things out and try it in the classroom!
