How I Use It
I use this site several times a week. I love that I can save and organize resources by topic. I use videos for introducing units. My students use the interactive activities to explore for themselves the topics that we are covering. I love the quiz feature. This site has so many uses!
My Take
The number of media resources is impressive for any site, but even more for a free resource! I love that they keep updating and improving the site. It is often my first stop when I begin to plan a unit. The new Lesson Builder, Quiz Maker, and Storyboard options only add the the usability of the site. They have also gotten around the student log in issues by generating a code for the teacher to give to the students. The regular updates make this site a winner in my book.
