Back to school means spending time going over a few rules and policy for our computer lab. Yes, it’s important to do when students are going to be using expensive equipment and the internet. But it also can be boring. To make the process more interesting, I developed age appropriate games using Turning Point clickers to review the lab rules. The students are having a blast clicking their way through the rules. For the younger kids, I made an activity using Kidspiration with 2 big circles saying DO and DON’T.  There are clip art pictures representing the rules that we are reviewing. Yes, some of the pictures are animated which I know drives design people crazy, but the kids love it.  As we talk about each rule, students will come to the Smartboard and drag each picture to the correct circle.  Here’s a screen shot of the activity:
