Day 92: Discussion

Class review of yesterday's worksheet. After checking the work for completion, upwards of 85% of the students made a solid effort. Again, that might be because it was easy, but I'll take it. 

Rather than deal with WB's, I used my tablet and alternated between randomly calling on students for their answers, and in some cases allowing students to draw their work on the tablet. They love playing with the toy, but like any other snazzy tech educators try to incorporate, it loses it's appeal VERY quickly if relied on too heavily. 

As important as routine is, I do see an advantage to "mixing it up" in terms of how I'll present or discuss the material. I might use the document camera, the tablet, or go "old school" and simply use the whiteboard at the front of class.
