Independent Technology Study
Think - Tac - Toe
Think-Tac-Toe, which is played like the familiar childhood game, is a simple way to give students alternative ways of exploring and expressing key ideas and using key skills. Typically, the Think-Tac-Toe grid has nine cells, just like the game. The number of rows and cells can, of course, be adjusted. As with related strategies, it is important that no mater which choice students make, they must grapple with the key ideas and use the key skills central to the topic or area of study. Think-Tac-Toes allow for differentiation by readiness, interest, and learning profile.
Each participant will enter the TechQuest Think-Tac-Toe by the center green ASSESSMENT square. Therefore, each participant will take a pre, self, and post technology assessment as well as create similar student assessments for the unit or lesson that will be developed. Participants then select the other two squares creating a straight line that dissects the center square. The choice can be either, horizontal, vertical, or diagonal.

Reminder: The choice must create a straight line that dissects the center green square.
