Computer Prototypes at Carl Ben Eielson Middle School

Sixth grade students from the Falcon team at Carl Ben Eielson Middle School started the year by taking on the role of engineers to create a cardboard prototype of their own personal learning device. Students were asked to create a prototype and take care of it responsibly for four school days before being issued their device from school. During those four days, students practiced how to use their device responsibly, respectfully, safely, and how to approach learning with a growth mindset. (Photos Courtesy of Jessica Magnuson)
