We've been thrilled with the response that we've had and the connections that have been made with our Quadblogging buddies. One of the tasks that we've set ourselves was to learn more about the towns and schools that we've been working with. We searched for a program and settled on Quiz Revoultion. We loved the features of it. When the students of Room Five were creating the Quiz about different places we spoke about reliable information and details, and making sure our information was correct. We've had huge success with our Tawa Intermediate/Wellington Quiz - according to our stats we've had over 500 people sit the Quiz since we first posted it online last Friday.
But there was a problem. It turned itself into a teaching point and lesson in class on Friday. Levi and Nathan H's Quiz Revoultion stated that there was a swimming pool at Tawa Intermediate School. We received feedback from students of Tawa Intermediate pretty
Firstly we asked Levi permission to discuss his mistake in class. We then looked at what process he had undertaken. Firstly Levi said that he'd used a Google search to determine that Tawa Intermediate had a pool. We asked if it could be re-created and Levi said no. We had a positive discussion about this and what we could infer from Levi's statement.
Levi responded by saying that he read online that Tawa Intermediate had a swimming competition, as they had posted the results online on their webpage, he inferred that this had meant that the had a swimming pool onsite, and Levi to his credit admitted that he hadn't confirmed this, he had made an assumption.
