Ratings and Reviews
I have been using this app for a while now and love it! I can create my own content quickly and have my kiddos work on it. They love drawing and typing their responses to my questions and prompts. Love it that I can see their responses instantly! Highly recommend this to all teachers with access to one or more iPads in classroom.
Great Tool for a classroom full of different learners
Thanks for this wonderful tool. I have shared it with many teachers. They thought it was a bit skimpy on content until they started adding their own as well as video content found online.
Great concept, just needs more content for sharing. I love it for sharing lessons I created right to my students' iPads in real time! It also tracks and saves results from individual students' responses in reports for me.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
