Reflection: Joy The Technology Challenge: Old School vs New School - Section 2: Application: Technology Challenge


Not all kids are naturally competitive, but when it comes to this type of race, everyone is on board!  They work in teams and finding the answers in either of these ways is not an activity any of them prepared for.  This leads to all of the kids feeling engaged, enthused, and at the same level with the what they have to do.  Even those who wanted their opinion of "whether traditional or technology is faster," to be correct couldn't help but get caught up in the spirit of getting the correct answer regardless of the form.  A fun way to highlight an interesting topic and get the class energized.

  The kids loved competition!
