How I Use It
I used it for practicing skills in an engaging manner rather than using worksheets (drill and kill). I also used the Prodigi exercises to help students focus on one skill. I used the ability to earn badges to motivate students to keep trying and practicing.
My Take
I think it's great for practice. Students would have to know the concept beforehand to play the games. Otherwise they will just "guess" and try to beat the game that way. The Prodigi is also good but having it timed is not necessarily always beneficial. I would like the website to develop better compatibility with mobile devices such as iPads and android devices.
