How I Use It
Study Jams is a good website to introduce, review, or summarize a topic. The videos are upbeat, short, and interesting for students. The topics are limited to Math and Science, and some topics are not in-depth. However, for the topics that are available, the site does a decent job giving an overview of a topic. It additionally has karaoke, quizzes, and other supplemental activities depending on the topic.
My Take
I think it is a useful, user-friendly, FREE website that helps supplemental topics in math and science. It can help our digital natives gain more understanding on a topic and even practice independently or with a group. For the performers, several topics offer karaoke as a supplemental component. I wish the site would add Language Arts and Social Studies topics as well.
