How I Use It
I was trying this tool in a technology class for education. I found it to be a great way for students to see how projects were relevant in a larger scale with what was being worked on. I liked that it allows for creation of lessons but also being part of lessons that other classes have already worked on. Specifically I enjoyed the map of travels which showed many different people and their journey's far and wide. I can see students being excited about being able to see what people from other parts of the world are creating when they work on projects also.
My Take
I would absolutely attempt to use this as a teaching tool, especially for social studies. A lot of the badges and projects I could see getting the kids excited for the topics being learned and making lessons more interactive with daily incentive.
