One Activity

  1. Melanie Kroening - Mesa Community College says:

    Interesting App that could be used in the classroom for a quick opportunity for students to make connections. There are several templates that organize student thoughts, reading graphic organizers such as KWHL (What I know, What I Want to Know, How Will I Learn, What I Learned) and Cause and Effect. Negative is that you have to subscribe to the full version to output to PNG, PDF, etc. So using inside a classroom may be ideal if you do not want to upgrade the app.
