Why I love it:
*Extremely User-Friendly – Can be taught in 1-2 class periods depending upon the level of student you have
*Easily able to embed videos from Youtube, websites, pictures
*Can save their projects on the actual website instead of going through the hassle of downloading and hoping your computer is compatible
*Students can create pathways that are multidirectional and can take the shape of anything they can imagine, instead of the overused transitions from slide to slide in PowerPoint.
*Students can use shapes and colors to show relationships between key ideas
*Critical thinking skills must be used instead of just simply copying and pasting words into a slide.
*More time is spent creating and less time asking the teacher for the 40th time: “What is the minimum number of slides I have to have?!”
