Do we as digital technologies teachers think that everything has to be done on a computer? Do students expect that everything has to be done on a computer?
Last year I did an exam problem, the seven bridges problem. Drew it on the quad at school in chalk and had the students running around for half an hour while they tried solving it. In a classroom they would have had it on paper, drew some ideas and told me 5 minutes layer that it isn't solve able. Sometimes I wonder what they will remember the most?
Its always the big activity :)
