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.
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 icon that opens the PDF. During distance learning, send the PDF through your learning management system so that students can open it on their own devices.
2. How you’re going to monitor student progress. The activities 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.
