Great multiuse tool, love that they have the same functions through their website as the downloadable program.

How I Use It
6th Grade students use it for digital storytelling making animated cartoons. 7th Grade makes interactive video games. Students gain a lot of attention to detail to making al the scripts work together.
My Take
Great tool that requires students give attention to detail. Students love how they have so much input into the finshed product. Some additional actions and ability to interact with backgrounds would be great(I know you can but the programming knowledge level starts getting high).
