How I Use It
This educational tool can be used in a variety of ways. In my classroom, I used it to allow students the capability of sharing their work outside of the four walls of the classroom. As students were able to develop "DIY" recipes, they were forced to develop a generic, yet specific, set of instructions for the reader to follow. Using creativity in their presentation was equally enjoyable with this teaching tool.
My Take
As a FACS teacher, technology that helps in the classroom can be challenging to come by. Using this website, it was easy for students to create their own recipes in a multimedia format. It was great for advancing the learning of both high level learners as well as general ones.
