How I Use It
I absolutely LOVE iCivics. For a long time, I was accused by other teachers of secretly working for iCivics because I brought it up ALL the time. I have used iCivics for a variety of uses, and I am currently using EverFi's Commons course, which is based on iCivics and includes a lot of their games. I use iCivics to introduce concepts to students and also as enrichment. The games are great because even low literacy and students with special needs are engaged by the graphics. My advanced learners enjoy them and compete against each other for high scores. Overall, wonderful app!
Overall, iCivics is an amazing collection of games for use in the classroom. Students enjoy playing them, are actively engaged, and are actually learning! In the past year, EverFi (another online learning company) has purchased iCivics games and incorporated them into their Commons course. Truly, I am not sure that there is anything I would change about iCivics. Give it a shot - your students will love it!
