A Revolution in Education
I honestly found this feature disappointing. I was expecting more. It is basically the vortex with the added feature of adding your own image instead of the vortex. I'm not a big fan of the vortex as it gives students immediate feedback. I would rather use category sort which enables students to sort, modify each others' sorts before revealing the correct answer. Sorry.
I feel the same way. I was expecting more... but maybe this is just a start. To get more ideas, in the gallery tab, under lesson activity examples, they have a few more samples... but it's the same idea.
I agree it was a little disappointing, but I am sure with time they will add other activities. I do like the Vortex and my teachers and students do also. Anything that we can do to engage students is a plus for instruction. I hope to see the SDK soon myself!
My opinion changed when I saw some of the examples in the Gallery. I teach high school physics and chemistry. I thought it was too 'elementary school' for my students. But I saw in the examples other ways to use it, some quite sophisticated. Of course I like the Periodic Table example.
