I thought, instead of me teaching my students about something, how about they go and find out for themselves!
So, I created a task where they had to go and research the motherboard. The had to find out what it was, how it worked and identify 10 components that connect onto a motherboard. For each component they had to list the name, function and location of the component.
The best part for me was using Google Classroom to send them the task and have them submit their back to me via Google Classroom! Very cool indeed!
Members of the Tech Teachers web site can access the task in the Resources Section. Look under Assessments, Activities (IT Grade 11).
