Today we began our unit on Ancient China. To kick off the unit the students used their Ipod Touches and the Edmodo app in small groups to brainstorm. The objective was to, as a group, post anything that the students already know about China (past or present). The live feed then was displayed on the SmartBoard.
The students were really engaged...most likely because they were able to use a piece of technology that they are very familiar with. However, they came up with many facts about China that were valuable.
