How I Use It
I don't really use it for students' independent use. I only use it to display videos and songs. The print out functions are nice, but I wish that were online and accessible to students for independent work.
My Take
My biggest issue with this is that while it is designed for a younger learner, the site doesn't function well for younger learners. It requires apps to be installed and the only real usability of the website are the songs, which are entertaining but only work on teacher computers in our school.
