How I Use It
I do not use these games to introduce a topic. Instead I use them for practice after a concept is learned. We also use it for problem solving and discussion. I also like that students can use the apps and games at home. More app games are needed.
My Take
It takes some time for us to figure out how to use each game. After we do that, they are fun. I hope they keep adding to their collection and improve the games even more. I particularly like the Space Mission. I haven't felt this has hurt or increased my students' math skills. In order for this to really effective in the class the games need to be more user friendly and we need more app versions. This company is working hard though and I like how they help teachers.
