How I Use It
For me I think in teaching this could serve as a basic introduction to various concepts. It works as a quick introduction but lacks further developing these concepts in a organized fashion.
My Take
This is a really entertaining method of learning and I like that it touches on a wide variety of concepts. It also provides the student with different modes of learning (IE quizzes, games). What I do not like is that the website lacks organization and direction. It would be much more helpful to organize the games and quizzes by skill level or more specific category. I would not want my students to get distracted taking a quiz about giraffees or food when I want them to learn about Jamestown. I think this is a good resource for individual learning or if students want to brush up on basic knowledge but I would not employ it as a classroom activity.
