Stephanie Budgett and Amy Renelle (University of Auckland) presented a a double workshop on contexts and their uses. In the first workshop, they considered how teachers and content creators can choose engaging contexts. There will be lots of activities and group work to get us talking about what makes a good context fun for students and a bad context a snoozefest!
In the second workshop, Stephanie and Amy continued to explore engaging contexts that can be used in the classroom utilising the Scampy Tool. They looked at waiting time data from the Tangerine Tweet Machine using Data Mode and Simulation Mode of the Scampy Tool.
