Reflection: Social Media Presence Engineering Challenge - Scribble Bots - Section 4: Connecting the Learning


When we have parent teacher conferences, I often hear from parents that they really like the scribble bot engineering design project. How did they know about it? Their students showed them the pictures or videos on their phones, Instagram accounts or twitter. Often when parents of middle school students ask, "What did you do in school today?" their students answer with "Nothing". The parents are delighted when their students are quick to show them something from class.

I share lots of classroom photos on Instagram and Twitter!
