One Year Wiser…

…but not wise enough.

The school year is under way and we had our Exploratory faire a week and half ago. Eighteen students signed up for Minecraft, including 2 eighth grade boys, 14 seventh grade boys and 2 seventh grade girls. That’s 2 more girls than last year!

All the computers were updated with the newest version and we were ready to go for our first Exploratory which was last week. I made the unfortunate mistake of thinking that I would hear about the computers not working if there were problems.

I arrived 10 minutes early and students were already there. I was hit with the bad news: “Bad video card drivers.” I called the tech department but they could not fix it in time to salvage our first meeting. With 18 kids in a computer lab, I had to think fast before things deteriorated into chaos.

“OK everyone, pair up (I love having even numbers of students) and play the game, Fire Boy and Water Girl.” This is a great game because kids solve problems together.
The video cards have since been updated and the computers have been checked. All set for this Thursday.
