How I Use It
I used this product to gain insight to its operation. I found that it would be a great tool in the classroom for older students. My preschool students could use it but I would have to guide them step by step. I could use it for them to see the different career choices and the salary and duties each has. This is a great tool for Career Day or the study of community helpers. The little that I did cover with my students did work and they were very interested in the duties and what each job had to do.
My overall opinion about this product as a teaching tool is that it took time for me to understand it. I was very lost at first as to how to work it and how to use it effectively. I wish it came with a real tutorial that was better helpful then the current one offered. However, once I did get acquainted with it I was able to work it very easily and found quite a bit of wonderful resources. One thing I like is it offers a safety lesson. As a teacher I had to verify myself and then once I was verified I was allowed on the site. So if you are interested give it about 3 to 8 days before you are allowed on. You then can register your students but I do not think it is appropriate for students under the age of 6 years old.
