It was the last week of term 2. Mid year exams, assessments and reports had all been completed. Liking the thought of the google rule of 20% time to play, I usually let the students in computer studies have ‘free time’.
This means that the boys in my year 9/10 class chose to play games, including minecraft. The girls tended to search through pinterest. One girl chose to read a book!!! But then noticing a lot of movement at the back of the room, was one of the girls learning to dance Polynesian style via youtube. She was not distracted by any of the others, nor did the boys or girls take their eyes of their screens except to quickly check out the action. She was up on her feet and had completed the moves in perfect timing by the end of the lesson.
