How I Use It
Students have used this product to participate in online discussions, collaborate in small groups for projects, access resources, and take advantage of some apps. The best feature is the ability to create "small groups" which can be used for actual small group work, differentiating instruction, whole class discussions on focused topics. The library/folders feature is an easy way to make resources available to all students.
My Take
There is very little content for high school chemistry students to work with and learn from. The apps are expensive and could be billed differently. For example, you need to buy a year subscription for an app even if it will only be used for a month or two. With that in mind, it is a useful tool to promote academic discussions and practice digital citizenship.
