How I Use It
I use this website/ tool to assess my students unique understanding of the topic I taught. For example when I taught my students about enzymes and how proteins affect the body, instead of asking them to answer traditional assessments (ex. quiz or long test with multiple choice and short response questions) I asked the students to use the digital pictures of art from this website to create a unique storyline that will summarize what they understood about proteins and how it affects the human body. Most if not all my students created great stories with funny tag lines.
My Take
I am impressed by the artworks in this tool that students can use to create their storylines but I am not happy with the way the website administrator reviews the stories because they delete the stories if they think that the wording and or plot is not appropriate for their website to publish.
