Teaching with Contests

September 28, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Not sure where this idea came from but it is wonderful. The contests make the students feel like what they are doing means something. Teachers feel like they are working towards a goal. I come across these occasionally.  Here is one I haven’t done yet, but it looks fun.  Create a 90 second video on something you learn in school. I want to do more of these.

    How does one go about finding these contests?

      Mike – I started with this site. http://teachingwithcontests.com/, but then I just seem to run into them on Twitter or Linkdin or other groups I am in. I will keep my eyes open for any for you.
