HOW CAN WE USE THIS SITE WITH STUDENTS?
- have students record sketchcasts and describe their families, their bedroom, their house, a town scene, their city.
- students can also talk about any given topic you propose while they scribble.
- for groups, you can create a channel where all students can add their sketches.
