How I Use It
I took a science lesson that we were working on in class and had student produce a short film explaining how to apply the concept to a new and novel idea. The ideas were drawn up by the class then each group randomly picked an idea to explain in their film.
My Take
Students really loved the creativity and final product that they were able to produce. The fact that it is computer based and not cloud based makes it hard for students to work on the projects away from a lab. The features were limited for the edu based product as well. Overall it was great to see all my students break away from the normal assessment, have fun, be creative, and really link their learning to new and novel ideas. Students are still asking to use it again which I would consider if an app version or online version were available.
