Nifty app gives students up-close access to historical treasures
Pros: Makes 41 of the world's treasures part of students' worlds, offering a fresh way to engage.
Cons: A little slow to pull up artifacts; audio support isn't consistently offered for all 41 artifacts.
Bottom Line: This is an undeniably cool app that encourages connection and curiosity, but without teacher support, student learning will be superficial.
