|From: Google Apps to Redefine Your Classroom Prezi|
One of the themes in James' presentation was that mistakes are necessary. It was a theme throughout the day, in fact: let kids fail. To encourage students to take risks, the classroom environment has to be a place where kids can "fail". Teachers can model by taking risks.
Daily Math Problem
I liked the idea of a math problem that uses Forms and Blogger. So each student completes their own activity on a form that is embedded in a blog post (that can be graded with Flubaroo) but that allows for discussion in the blog comments.
He uses a script called Form Limiter to close the form at a set time, but not during class time. This allow students who do not complete the problem during class time to continue to work on it later. He also encourages students to create their own daily math problem.
