Applications for Education
One of the aspects of the activities that I like is the instant feedback for every practice question a student attempts. As you can see in the image above, if a student answers incorrectly on his first attempt, he will see the definition and the word in context. has an optional competition aspect to it. Students can play for their schools and climb the leaderboard.
