Ideas for Expansion


What kind of object-- a note, a picture, a program, a song-- can this exercise encourage students to create? In what ways can these students learn by doing?


How can students collaborate in this activity? How can they share? Do the children work together in the classroom? What about over the mesh? Does the class communicate with classes in other towns? In other countries?


How can this activity be adapted for a setting outside of the classroom? What about for a specific region or location? What kind of practical, real-world, or region-specific knowledge can this activity help children learn?


How can you use the base activities Write, Capture, Draw, etc., to extend this exercise into a new discipline or dimension?


What's going on underneath the surface? How does this exercise allow children to explore underneath-- and behind-- the activity? What kind of deeper understanding do they gain about the concepts and tools they use in everyday life?


How can students reflect on what they've learned? And how should this activity be recorded? What kind of digital object should be produced and stored in the Journal?
