How I Use It
I would use this product during class lecture to draw connections between key concepts. I would also encourage students to use this product individually as a note-taking tool to use while reading, for preparing outlines for writing assignments, and for study purposes. I would also encourage this products use in group assignments that require planning and collaboration.
My Take
I think this product has a lot of potential. There are a lot of features to uncover, so it may take a little time for students to get comfortable using it. However, the ends would certainly justify the means. The fact that documents can be shared serves as a an important tool to promote collaboration and social learning of concepts.
