How I Use It
I used Digital Compass at the end of my Digital Safety unit. This was a great way for students to apply what was learned during this unit. Students loved that they could select a character to explore the interactive games. I even had students come in during recess to continue playing their game.
My Take
I really enjoyed Digital Compass. Although, characters were used in the game, the situations were realistic. It was a great tool to assess what the students learned, especially that students could print their score. Digital Compass took real life internet situations and made the the game educational, fun, and accessible at the same time. What more could an educator ask for, when teaching such a critical unit?
