How I Use It
I use it for enrichment activities after a student has completed other assignments. However as I become more familiar with the lessons I am going to use it more as the primary mode of instruction.
My Take
This is a great way for students to use a "game like" activity to further apply what students have learned. There are great lesson plan resources to go with each of the areas. It seems to be sluggish when lots of students are on the games at the same time or it might be that it takes a large amount of bandwidth.
