How I Use It
This product seemed like it would be a great opportunity for engagement, and differentiation for some students who need to interact to learn but this product falls far short. The system seems to be quite buggy and with one to one in most classrooms now it seems to be almost pointless. Furthermore, the cost to keep this system up to date with the latest technology is way too high for the value that it adds to the classroom.
My Take
Overall, I think that this technology is very out of date to a point where it no longer serves a purpose in the classroom. This technology was groundbreaking when it first came out however, it has not done anything to remain up with the times and a computer, ipad, or other personal device is much more useful than this.
