How I Use It
My students love creating stories with Elementari for specific audiences in my English classes, and to practice the target language in my Spanish classes. You could also easily have students create how to videos with this tool to explain a concept that serves as a formative. I can't wait to create a breakout room with it this year.
My Take
I truly love using this as a teaching tool. Elementari helps students work on coding and storytelling, writing, reading, and how to write for authentic and specific audiences. It's so engaging. When a student figured out how to get the dragon to fly, the whole class rejoiced! Coding is the best way to learn resiliency and that failure isn't the end of the journey but rather the beginning. Elementari can also be used without students coding anything at first, but they can still create, write, read, listen, speak, and more. The support that Elementari provides is also amazing. I highly recommend!
