This is not a famous failure but more a sign of how I am trying to learn to use tech -sometimes with failure! But still learning.

I thought it would be interesting to have my 8th grade history class make a movie of the causes of the Revolutionary War. I divided them into groups to brainstorm the key events, write the script and film it. Sounded great on paper! Then class after class went by! They were working on all sorts of aspects of their projects, but in the end, there was very little development of their history thinking going on. After about 2 weeks, I finally had to stop the project and move on with the curriculum. To my surprise, they were not at all surprised that it was time to close that project and move on to the next, a mock Constitutional Convention, which went more smoothly and effectively.

My lesson: make the focus smaller. Give each group a specific event rather than a group of events. Plus it is always good to admit mistakes to my students. They learn and grow from watching me take a chance and then need to regroup.
