Help!! What do my students really know?

via TECH TREK by Twyla Felty

It happens to every teacher! You have made your best effort to teach a concept to your students but are still experiencing that “Ferris Bueller” effect: “Anyone, anyone?”. You can almost hear the crickets in the room. But…(of course!), technology can help!

This past week, Mr. Rowley was working with students to master the basics of Newton’s Laws of Motion amid Red Ribbon Week, football games, pep rallies, and Fun Fridays complete with Halloween costumes! That’s some tough competition. So, he decided to see if they could transfer any of Newton’s Laws to real-life experiences and had students create presentations to describe the basics of these laws in action. Good times! 
Enjoy a short presentation of one of these projects!
