There are 2 options for getting students to the activities.
1.Add the PDF to each computer or device so that students can open it during their tech station time. Students work through each activity on the TECHademics game board.
1.Print and prep the QR code task cards. Students can use a tablet or any device that can capture a QR code to open a web page. Students work through each activity until they’ve done them all.
For the teacher to consider:
1.How you’re going to share the PDF with your students. The most efficient way for your students is for you to make a desktop shortcut that opens the PDF.
2.How you’re going to monitor student progress. The games don’t save individual progress, so I recommend having students practice to mastery. They can retry any activity until they get it completely right.
3.How long these activities will take students. The answer to this depends on the individual student. Some will breeze through the content while others may take several tries.
