How I Use It
I have used PebbleGo with second graders for group research projects. They created Animoto (short videos) of certain animals and birds. They used the content to gain knowledge and create their own videos of animal. They enjoyed listening to the sounds and watching video clips. It introduces them to basic research concepts such as citing sources. The content was age appropriate and every student was comfortable with using the website.
My Take
PebbleGo serves as a great research tool for young learners who are in early elementary grades. The website makes learning fun. The multi-media (audio, video, text etc.) format appeals to multiple learning styles. The format is simple, interactive and easy to use. It is so engaging that students did not realize that they were learning high level research skills.
