Kist talked about how the snowball activity was collaborative although technology wasn’t involved. He also pointed out how it was not teacher driven and how it built community. At my school teachers and administration believe that technology is a great way to engage students. Sometimes I think while pushing for more technology integration into the curriculum they forget, that engagement is engagement. Students can be engaged without the use of technology. I am not discounting the use of technology however it was nice to be reminded that there are other innovative ways to engage students.
