Project Popplet 4: Presentations

Over the last few weeks, we have been looking at how Popplet can be used in Project work –  all project work: A school assignment about volcanoes, the implementation of new machinery into a factory, or planning the opening of a coffee shop.

The Timewarp Tool, as you may have guessed, lets you return to a previous version of any popplet at a point when it was created, and view it. Timewarp tells you precisely when that version of your popplet was saved.
