Tech Tools in Math

Students show off their video game designs.

Middle School Power Math students spend Fridays in the Think Lab using Bloxels Builder, a video game making app for kids. Students are no longer just playing video games, they get to be the creators! To build video games, students must work through the design process, develop critical thinking skills, and effectively collaborate with team members. This project has made math relevant and sparked some serious creativity in the Think Lab. Thanks, Mrs. Henry, Ms. Broussard, and Mrs. Harrison for partnering with me on this project!
