As more teachers begin to use Leopard, the benefits of the educational aspect of the tool are becoming obvious.
Megan O’Leary is a teacher who uses WeatherBug Achieve in her classroom, and after using Leopard for just one day, she sent in both her personal thoughts and those of her students.
My class wanted to write the two of you a note letting you know how much they LOVED using Leopard today!!
Leslie says: I think it’s a really great program for kids and people of all ages. I hope we get to do it again.
Emma says: It’s an awesome program!!
Liza says: I think it’s great, and it’s fun, and you get to experiment independently. It is one of the most fun projects we’ve done on the computer this year!
Chaun says: I think it is really cool and one of the best applications I’ve ever used. I love how you can use all of the different colors!
Anna says: I think it is great!! It is especially good for kids who may be looking into programming. It is also a lot of fun!!

The other Sam says: It was one of the best activities we’ve done on the computers this year! It was really interesting and once you get going you keep learning more and more!
As you can see, it was a fantastic experience for my class. As I watched them navigate the program, it was amazing the amount of independence it allows them as they figure it out!! On the whole they found it to be an awesome experience!
