Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can have students use this app’s glossary to look up and define key terms.
  2. Teachers can create a review game by having students answer specific quiz questions as fast as possible and record their scores using a class website app such as Edmodo.
  3. Research topics can be assigned using this app by having students take a quiz to identify a topic that they do not know. Next, the teacher can assign students a research project about the assignment to build their knowledge of the topic. For example, teachers can require students to use iMovie or Educreation to design a video about the topic identified using this app, and then post their video to the class website or play it for their classmates.
