I got a chance to really explore it this time!!
- Versatile, can make it whatever you want it to be.
- Easy to use.
- Infinite resources – teacher can share with other teachers.
- Great tool for differentiated instruction, its simple setup allows for students to encounter the same material in different ways, therefor keeping their interest.
- Simple design, own images can be included.
- Time consuming to make your own resources.
- Resources included aren’t always the best quality.
- Almost too many resources to skim through.
- Design can be off due to user error – teacher has a lot of control over everything.
Review of Algebra Genie:
- Lots of topics covered.
- Built in quizzes.
- Made by teachers
- Great college prep questions.
- Clean an simple layout
- Broke down topic areas
- Related to the curriculum
- Allows students to stay on par with students from other countries (US/UK)
- Looks a little date.
- A bit glitchy.
- Slow at times, needless animated intros.
