I’ve been playing with Google Drive at my school for a while now. Part of my role is to support other staff with using Google in their classrooms. I got to thinking today – how could I visually represent the degree to which apps have have an impact in my classroom?
I wanted to show that some have to be beginner level, but also that these “basics” can be used in a more sophisticated way when they were fully understood by the teacher. There were others that straight away offered more complexity and richness in the outcomes they offered learning in and out of the class.
Increasing levels of difficultly and reward? Donkey Kong popped into my head. The rest is history.
