Session 6

April 17. 2013

This week, we  will discuss creativity, what is is and why it is important.  Then students  will come up with their own Minute-to-Win-It games from  a bunch of common household items.  For students participating at HOA, you will need to include a discussion post of your own and respond to at least 1 other student to earn your full credit.
Here are some writing prompts to help you get started with your post.  You may pick and choose from the ones listed or come up with your own discussion point.
  1. Describe the process in which you created your game. Was it easy?  Did you have a lot of revisions?
  2. Did you initially choose to work on your own or did you collaborate with someone? Why?
  3. Was you work modified by the collaboration process?  Did collaboration improve the end product or not?
  4. Do you think it is easier or more of a challenge to be creative when there are many resources available to build with or just a few?  In other words, does more stuff make it easier, or just more confusing?
  5. Discuss the overall experience today.   Do you consider this type of activity ‘learning’ or of any value?  Why or why not?


To earn your ThinkFeed credit online for the Minute-to-Win-It session, you will need to come up with your own Minute to Win It game and post it in the Q4 Think Feed Discussion area at the top of your course page.  (If you don’t know what this is, please do an online search.)  You only have to explain what you did, but if you want to include a video, that would be amazing!  Be sure to keep your idea school-appropriate.

 1.  Only use inexpensive, common items found around the house.

 2.  Give specific step-by –step instructions on how to play and win

 3.  Try it out and tell how it went.  Did the game work? Why or why not?
