Clash City Rockers/Complete Control - with zondle!

Thanks to James Howes from zondle for this brilliant use of zondle to teach #lifelessons and all about @TheClash

We love this!

“Well, sir, learn to jest in good time: There’s a time for all things”
Dromio of Syracuse, Comedy of Errors, Act 2 Scene 2
I said it last time and I’ll say it again far too often the voice least heard in a school building is the students. We spend an inordinate amount of time trying to figure out what they want and how to reach them but we rarely actually ask them the question directly.
To this end I have been so luckily that this year I have been able to take a group of students and work with them to express their own needs. My Centaur Action Team has given students the freedom to explore how they think technology should interact with their classrooms.
I had grand schemes for how they might redesign a classroom and discuss what a truly innovative classroom would look like. As of yet though they have been more interested in trying out different products and then giving feedback to their classrooms. The results of this have been fantastic and more importantly it’s what they want to do. I’m not holding their hands.
I ask them to select a few products and then go through setting up the product for them to try out. As of this week we have reviewed NewsELA,code.org, ST MathEduCanon and Zondle. With explorations ofedpuzzle and others to follow.
They were particularly impressed by Zondle’s team function. The difficulty is that the group consists of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. This means a range of knowledge and proficiency. I therefore taught a mini lesson on my favorite band The Clash. What followed was a light hearted quiz.

The kids loved the interactivity and had a blast playing the game. A massive thumbs up and more importantly I got to indoctrinate students as to the genius of Strummer, Jones, Simonon and Headon. Even though it was light hearted a first grader was still able to tell me that “Police and Thieves” is my favorite Clash song when I saw him today. He even sang the refrain. This made me exceedingly happy.
This partnership of trying new products out together and selecting which things to test is really empowering for all. Furthermore the students are really partners in my thinking they tell me things I didn’t know or wouldn’t have thought of. I hope therefore to grow this CAT group to become a more permanent Student Research and Development Council.
In this way I can give them the space and freedom to really express their needs and voice. This voice will be essential in convincing teachers and leaders in the validity of the approaches and products we are utilizing. I wonder what they will consider to be essential innovations to school and how this will differ from the adult perspective.
On Friday we have an extended CAT session and during that time I will turn over a blog to the students. In this forum they can share their ideas and experiences so stay tuned for a different, all to seldom heard, voice.

Great video by Audrey Misiano showing how students sign up and get started on zondle!

A BIG thank you to Audrey Misiano for creating this screen-cast video which shows how students create an account, link to their teacher's class and get started playing games.  There were a few school wi-fi issues during the recording.

If there's ONE word it's "priceless"

I am constantly looking for creative, innovative technology tools to further enhance and engage student learning.  Along with the 1 to 1 iPad initiative we have in our school district zondle is the perfect tool for students to increase their knowledge, stay engaged and have fun at any time on any device or computer they are using!

I am eager, excited and motivated and will be using zondle through out the school year.  I have a group of eager students who I know will be willing to create their own topics so they can motivate their peers who are enrolled in their respective class and other classes at Memorial High School in South Texas. Our school administrators are anxious to learn more about zondle and implement it as an enrichment teachers can use.

 zondle's customer service has exceeded my expectations all questions, concerns and any technical issues are taken care of in a timely fashion.  Excellent customer service and great technology tool, and for being a complementary technology tool, IT'S PRICELESS  and anyone in the world can use it and benefit from how easy it is to generate lessons in a fun and very creative way!  Simply AWESOME!
