Teacher Review For Tackk

Very cool tool, but the Stream is unsupervised and at times contains objectionable content.

How I Use It
This tool offers a way to enhance a traditional book report or research project through a unique, modern, and interactive presentation tool.
My Take
This is an amazing tool, but the under-moderated Stream makes it a resource we are choosing not to support in our district. Recently I was working on creating a demo for how it works and I came across pornographic images posted to the Stream. I reached out to Tackk via email and on Twitter and did not get a response. I'm disappointed to abandon this tool, because it offers a unique and valuable resource.
