How I Use It
I used this at a field trip where I assigned students certain checkpoints for them to check off doing by taking pictures and videos using their cell phones or tablets. It worked great and helps students use their phones to be productive and eliminate the stigma.
My Take
This is a fun app to use to promote movement and fun outside of school and during school in times such as field trips. While this might not be every teacher's favorite idea, I think it is important to promote students to be creative and want to get students to know what they are doing outside of school.
