Esta herramienta es muy fácil de usar. Y si es fácil para mí, es fácil para mis estudiantes. Realicé una actividad con mis estudiantes de 201. Ellos debían hacer una foto interactiva con el tema de la vivienda en Hispanoamérica. Les pedí que incrustaran cinco enlaces a la fotos, cuatro obligatorios y uno libre. Los chicos hicieron un buen trabajo, encontraron fotos interesantes y dieron información relevante a éstas. Algunos incluyeron un pequeño quiz y todos incluyeron un link con una grabación de voz con la descripción de la foto y su opinión sobre ésta. De un grupo de 49 estudiantes sólo una presento inconvenientes al subir la foto, lo cuál en mi opinión fue muy positivo, ya que no recibí innumerables correos de mis estudiantes quejándose porque la herramienta fue difícil de usar. A todos los que vean esta información les recomiendo que usen esta herramienta en sus clases, e incluso pueden hacer una presentación haciendo uso de esta herramienta.

compared to a free app, like mindjet for instance, is it really worth the 8€? Thanks in advance for any feedback.
