TES Teach with Blendspace
Create multimedia lessons with engaging but not-so-interactive style
Pros: The design is great; it works on any internet-connected device; the option to create lessons that students can view at home is a bonus.
Cons: There's not a lot of interactivity, and without careful planning and content vetting, it's easy to overwhelm kids with busywork.
Bottom Line: Allows you to incorporate lots of multimedia resources, but be discerning with content and assessments to avoid lazy teaching or learning.
