Reflection: Adaptive Technology Bud, Not Buddy Jeopardy (Chapters 9 - 19) - Section 4: Closure


Since most of my students do not watch the Jeopardy game, it is still a challenge to get them to respond in the form of a question.  Having students to go thru the questions in a logical order column by column was a means of scaffolding I used to guide them and help them to locate responses quicker without having to look all over the book.  We played the game in two teams rather than individually.  I found this strategy to be useful in building collaboration and social skills with my students.  Through my professional experience, I've found allowing students to play games in order to reinforce content is a very effective instructional strategy.  Paying attention to student groupings is important so students are not simply relying on 1 or 2 students to provide all answers for the group.
