Despite the myth of "digital natives," most of my students have very little experience using technology as anything more than a consumer device. It doesn't have to be this way. By using the design thinking cycle, teachers can foster creative thinking in every content area.

  41. 41. Which teams will make it to the NBA Finals this year? a By Aram Posted 5 months and 0 Comments Which teams will make it to the NBA Finals this year? Teacher Tin: Highlight text to annotate. Click here to see how There are certain teams that seem to be built for the regular season but not for the postseason. They are the ones that can be totally on fire and then they just fizzle like a sparkler until they are nothing but a smoky stick. They looked so good but they just didn't have the defense to make it all the way Right now. the teams that seem that way are the Wizards and the Warriors. Both teams live and die by great. fast~pa(ed offensive play. But the team that epitomizes this fast paced style is the Mavericks. Rondo looks unstoppable and he probably will stay that way until he finally faces a fully rested Spurs team in the playoffs. I have a hunch they‘| | shut him down. There are other teams that seem like they might be for real but you just can't tell yet. Right now. the Hawks have the best record in the East. The Raptors, too, are shocking people with how great they are playing, I mean. think about it. Can you name any players on either of those teams? These are teams that seem likely to fizzle like the Suns did last year. They just don‘t have the star power.
