I am writing this to satiate my desire to document my ideas…though I never do. It goes by the wayside far to easily and I wish I had a more complete record of my attempts to bridge the gaps between good pedagogy and gimmicks with technology.
Here goes one…
We are playing checkers tomorrow to re-introduce (thank you, Spring Break) translations to 7th and 8th graders. Should be fun, hopefully it sticks. I already used Geogebra to show translations, and it sort of got lost…probably should have started with checkers.
Round two of Translation introductions tomorrow, thanks Spring Break!
