Does anyone find that these topics end up getting covered by Science in their school?  I've had it happen a  couple of times which is really frustrating.

General Discussion / Euro 2016
« on: June 06, 2016, 12:49:47 PM »
As it's nearly end of term here, transition day and I love football I made some Top Trump style cards for Euro 2016.  The majority of the statistics are from the CIA World Fact book.  The facts at the bottom of each country are from a range of websites.  Hopefully everything on there is correct.
If you want a set you should be able to download them from the following link

I used a spreadsheet from up on the board to fill in scores. 

If it doesn't work/I've got something wrong please let me know and I can change it  :)

No more excuses of 'Sorry I was late, I got stuck in traffic!'  ;)
Interesting idea, wonder if it will ever get off the ground...

I can see that happening here.  When our head was trying to sell them to he was really enthusiastic about how we could show videos on them and display news articles for the class to see.
Maybe I'm ahead of the curve as I've been using my standard whiteboard and projector for this.  ???

My school has decided they are the future, which means we will no doubt be investing some money in them shortly.  Personally I'd rather the students had tablets or laptops.
I've had limited experience of interactive boards, only using them for one or two students to come up and interact with it whilst the rest watch.
What are other people's experiences, and does anyone know of useful articles they could point me in the direction of.

A few years ago I did exam marking and the examiners took great pride in the fact that no-one (on here) had successfully guessed the topics.  For me it's not worth trying to do, just try and ensure they are prepared for as much as possible, and they are able to stay focused if something they are not strong on comes up.

I've also found students who seem to think this is a good idea, they end up under prepared because they try to focus on particular areas they think will come up because they've spent their time on sites like extreme papers rather than careful revision.

I stayed just down the road from there the other summer, not on a trip though.  I guess if you want to to do something out and about getting in Sorrento isn't really an option though there is the train but that probably isn't practical.

I'd probably take some DVDs, Pompeii for example.  You could get them to do some sort of talent evening?  When I was on a trip to that area we did take the students just for a walk around and down to the marina/beach area where they just had some free time to wander round etc

Where in Italy are you going to?  Is there anything on in the evening they could go to in the area?
