When the internet goes out during the last period of the day, and all the writing the students have done is stored in Google Docs, a quick decision must be made.
After the principal delivered the message, I gave them a choice.
1. You can work on your speech if you do not need the internet.
2. You can read.
Books were quickly retrieved out of backpacks and the classroom noise died down within moments.
My students dove into their adventures for one beautiful and technology free hour.
No internet? No problem.
