Do and Does Fun Deck App Reviews

Super!

As an elementary school English as a second language teacher, I love Super Duper Fun Decks. Pictures are an indispensable tool for learning language. The pictures in this Fun Deck are a springboard for language production and comprehension. Teachers can use the images in conjunction with a sentence frame in order to structure and extend the students' responses. Since this fun deck can automatically correct a response, students can play the game independently with partners. Or, I can project the game from the iPad onto a screen and we play as a whole group. In whole group playing, student partners confer with each other and write their answers on a small white board. I award points for the correct answer AND for the partners explaining why they made the answer choice. Playing whole group or in a small group with the teacher has the advantage of greater metacognition as students have to explain their thinking. Playing independently in small partner groups has students go through the questions and answers more quickly and has the advantage of giving students more opportunities to respond. The app provides instant feedback, letting the students know if they've answered correctly. It also keeps score so teachers can monitor their students' progress. This means that the teacher is not the lynchpin holding the students' attention and collecting data. The colorful app keeps the students engaged and learning!

Nice

A good app to have to go with the card deck.

Great

Another great addition to the collection. Same request as with other apps. Show me data collection at the end, not during the session.
