How I Use It
I used it both as an after school activity and a couple of lessons in upper elementary. It used to be a bit difficult to sign in kids at first but they launched an educator account. We can enrol our students ourselves. It is a great tool for kids to get engaged in activities and communities that they are interested in.
As a teaching tool, it was great to see each kid finding their own way of engaging with the site. I learned a lot about the kids that I was working with. What their interests were and what kinds of things they wanted to make. I also am curious to see how the DIY Camps work. They have just launched it this year.
