Usage: as a resource to give students hands on learning and body kinesthetic integration

Strengths: The way it integrates the student 3-D interaction in a lab setting is amazing. I can see the appeal for all students to utilize it to learn all kinds of concepts.

Suggestions for Improvement: smaller scale to have it set up into more classrooms and increase the time it can be utilizied, since in a large school not all classes would get a lot of resource time.

Verdict: Students have authentic learning and it is fun with bodykinesthetic integration.

Usage: In Physics, when I teach motion graphs, I lay down a coordinate system on my classroom floor by marking it with chalk and asking my students to demonstrate the graph of a certain type of motion and / or to demonstrate the motion of a certain graph. A similar activity in Smallab would be a great level up for this activity with added real time data from my students' movements.

Strengths: I like the fact that they both have lots of activities in their library on several content areas and that they would provide PD for customizing and creating your own content.

Suggestions for Improvement: I would like to see more content delivery done through the product created by teachers and standards aligned. I do love the reinforcement and enrichment activities that it does.

Verdict: Great enrichment and reinforcement tool and if used in a good lesson plan, even a stand alone content delivery method specially in my area of science and technology.

Usage: This looks to be a fabulous way to get kids up and moving. It projects onto a table or floor and allows kids to interact with the product and each other.

Strengths: Allows for kids to interact and get moving; price is inclusive of all items needed to operate and use product.

Suggestions for Improvement: I wish it could be used in a smaller space. This product would be shared school wide which limits where it would be installed and would be further limited by when it could be used. Our cafeteria would be an ideal location in terms of space but very limiting in terms of available times to use it.

Verdict: This product is a school wide product and will only be able to be used in a centralized location. This limits who can use it and when.
