Marble Maze- TLA in Action!

April 16th, 2009 · 2 Comments · Voicethread

What’s a TLA?  MaryAnn Gordon’s 7th grade Pre-Vocational Class can tell you! 

A TLA is a Technological Learning Activity.  It is solving a problem using a set a given parameters.  In the case of the Marble Maze, the students had a limited number of track pieces, a specific timeframe, and a goal to keep the marble in motion for as long as possible. This TLA (including the production of the Voicethread) required teamwork and planning.  The students used our new FLIP cameras to capture their project.  Please enjoy their work and feel free to comment on the blog.
