Today I'm starting an experiment, On the back wall of my classroom I've set up a technology cool wall and I challenged my senior and first year pupils to bring in some new gadgets/technology to put up on it and so far the pupils seem exited about it.
I've used the same headings as in the Top Gear Coolwall - Seriously Uncool, Uncool, Cool Sub Zero and the DB9 Fridge. We've now had the first 4 entries onto the wall and we now have one in all but the DB9 Fridge (Cooler than Sub Zero).
The S1 will be doing this later on today (Some of them seem really excited about their gadgets) as well so I plan to put up a list of entries to the wall as soon as I can.
The hope for the wall is that it gets the pupils curious and interested in new technology.
