Things to think about:
Memorable Quotes:
Maggie: My iPod does not hook up to the Internet
Jed: If you want to be a mathemagician
Darren: yes, I accidentally went to myspace.com.
Noah: Math zombie was the only thinking game because the rest timed you to see how fast you can do it
Sebastian :I think that we still need to use them for educational reasons
Ty: Today somehow I got hangman, It was cool! Then I donlowded some songs on Tap tap revenge , and played them. Then I studyed for my sol test with flash cards.

So What:

What did the kids get out of it?


Reflective skills:
Jed I think metasquares was not easy, but not too hard. I won the first two games, lost the third game, and won the last two. you must take your time and think, you would have to use this skill when you play poker, and on tests.

Darren My experience was horrible.
I lost every single time. Obviosly it was hard.
I think the skill is critical thinking. I think you would use this skill if you are trying to find the
story inside the story.
*I think the skill is like a detective trying to narrow down the
possibilities of the criminal.

Sammie 7 I would use this skill in real life for geometry because of how to put the square in different position. This skill could also be used in a game like chess becuase you have to predict what your opponent's next move is going to be.

Connective skills:
Maggie The game was hard, because you had to figure out where to put the little dot.
I would use this skill in life when I am playing Madden NFL. Because I have to figure out what play to do and, I have to figure out what Wide Reciever to throw to.

Accountability:
Noah I have used notes to know what to say when you ask me how me how my ipod t.v project went.

Darren 5 My experience was horrible.
I lost every single time. Obviosly it was hard.
I think the skill is critical thinking. I think you would use this skill if you are trying to find the
story inside the story.
*I think the skill is like a detective trying to narrow down the
possibilities of the criminal.

Personal Goal Setting:
Ty 6 My dad has a Ipod- touch and it will be cool to have my own for a little while. I want to learn how to type faster on it.( it is hard)
Sebastian I feel that it would be a good experience to be able to get used to the some of the world's greatest technology, I think that it would also be fun to teach my dad and mom how to use it.
