How will I use this in my future classroom?

Simple; I'll use this to help my kids better learn Shakespeare. When they don't understand a word, they can simply touch the word, and see the definition right before their eyes. I can give them reading assignments, and once they're done with the reading, or to supplement the reading, they can look up the analyses of the scenes right there on the screen. I am honestly going to use this in my future classroom, if the app is still around. It's a wonderful tool, and there are numerous ways I can use this app to help myself teach my students about a very famous and important poet and playwright.
