Teacher Review For Digital Compass

Every student related to the characters and the online issues they faced within the modules. Games were challenging but fun. This is a great tool to cement concepts learned in the classroom!

How I Use It
I used this product as a project while teaching the Digital Citizenship curriculum in my class. Students were required to interact in each module by getting to the end of each story at least once. They also played the games attached to each module. I used the writing prompts to get them to reflect on their experience with the modules in regards to what they learned, how they related to the characters and what situations they most connected to. I gave them time in class, and then requred some time outside of class as well. This strategy seemed to work well.
My Take
I like the opportunity each use has to go back and redo the modules as many times as they want. I will encourage my students to use this for review throughout the semester. We did have some difficulty with a few signing in, so perhaps some password recovery option would be helpful as they are used to that. Every student seemed to enjoy and connect to at least one of the situations.
