How I Use It
I used this app when teaching Science to my newcomers. It is almost impossible to find great vivid pictures that help student not only feel engaged but take their learning to the next level. This becomes even more difficult in language that is understood by students. I used this site when studying the different ecosystems. I introduced the different ecosystems and used this as a supplemental to bring this ecosystem to life. I created a Symbaloo with these specific videos to have easy access for the students. The videos were very engaging that lead my students to take their investigation to a deeper level.
My Take
This iste was alive and easy to navigate. Students were engaged by t he professional pictures and captions. The information was simple and to the point, LOVE IT!
