How I Use It
I use this in our whole classroom lessons. Students are better able to see and understand what we are discussing when they can actually see the images on the board. I also use this as a reward. Students who get extra iPad time love to explore the different pieces of this website.
My Take
I love this website. It is so great to add into your teaching. I also love the breadth of the site. It is great to be able to incorporate different themes and cultures into our classroom. Many students don't get a chance to experience out of country opportunities and this is a great way for them too! I like that my higher students can use this as a way to enrich their learning on their own.
