Clay Reisler, technology integration specialist, has a fantastic blog called iPaddiction. In a recent post Clay shares a three minute video of high school students going through the process of creating a Stick Around puzzle. Psychology students were tasked with creating a puzzle that would help solidity their learning about the parts and functions of the human brain.
Clay says that the high school seniors were "total engaged" in this activity. Watch the video and see for yourself.
Clay writes how the activity addresses three Cs:
Collaboration: Students discovered links and information on one iPad and shared that information with another student on a different iPad utilizing Google Drive.
Creativity: Students were able to decide the design and content of their puzzle.
Critical Thinking: Not only did students need to label parts of the brain, they also needed to provide additional resources for supporting the purpose of each brain part.
