There are a lot of observations you can make on each simulation.

How I Use It
I use it with nearpod or as a supplement to my lessons. These are already programmed, and they relate with NGSS DCI, so they are very handy.
My Take
I encourage people to use it, but do not use just this. Obviously, your lesson quality is more important than relying on the simulation. Observation and debrief are the keys.
