How I Use It
I often use Starfall and More Starfall as a follow up to a lesson that was student driven where students used creation software (e.g. Pixie) to build knowledge. And, as a guilty pleasure to reward them for their hard work.
My Take
I think Starfall and More Starfall find a really good balance between fun and engaging activities and pedagogical content.
