In one of the sessions I attended during this weekend’s Tech Field Day SA, Cori Coburn-Shiflett spoke about using technology games in the classroom. As she pointed out, even sites and apps that were not designed for education can be used for learning. AR Basketball is a good example. Even though I posted about this app awhile ago, I did not have it listed on my AR Resources page because I felt that some teachers might question its educational value. However, Cori directed us to a great resource from Charlotte Dolat (one of the fabulous Tech Field Day organizers) that provides free printable worksheets for math integration with this app. By changing the activity to one that teaches mean, median, and mode, AR Basketball becomes a win/win for the teacher and the students.
