How I Use It
This product creates specific lesson plans that help classrooms from across the globe interact with one another. However, the lessons are somewhat strict and have a rigid timeline.
My Take
I think it's very cool how students can collaborate with others across the globe who are learning the same things. However, since standards vary across countries it is hard to match the lessons up perfectly. It also gives little timeframe flexibility. This is not good f one class needs more time to complete a particular lesson,
