How I Use It
It is a nice way to integrate concise synthesized writing with images and student research/learning. It is also a great multimedia tool for presenting different levels of depth of information, ranging from summarizing information to specific examples (such as embedded videos or articles). Unfortunately, my school's web-filter started blocking access to the website half-way through the school year last year. I have been able to gain access, but it is a pain to get authorization past such web filters, but this obviously varies from school district to school district.
If you have accessibility to the website, I highly suggest trying it. During the 2013-2014 school year the website began to get flooded with a lot of private projects and sometimes school inappropriate files, so I advise teachers to always thoroughly check the current traffic and usage of the website during the time they are planning to use such an online tool.
