Special Education Teacher Loves this App!
I teach K-8 Special Education at school that uses the Envision K-5 series and I love this app. It is an excellent way to start a session in a small group or refresh the concept quickly during inclusion. I would love to see an app for each grade level of the series. It would make access to the general curriculum so much easier for my students with learning disabilities.
As a third grade math teacher who uses this series, I thought this was a cool app. The visual animation is exactly like the one I show in class. I liked the quick check at the end.
I could see this as a good app for parents or for teachers to have on iPods in the classroom.
It leaves only one question: when can we expect more?
As a math teacher, I was excited to see this app and had high expectations. These led to disappointment. All the app really is is three videos with a quiz each afterwards. There is no interactivity to speak of, no real knowledge check, investigative ability... really, it's so limited. If they want a good app, they should ask teachers like me what would be useful!
