Andra, thanks for the lovely compliment! At the beginning of the year, I obviously need to assess my students' technology skills, in addition to everything else I am assessing. Activities like these let me assess my students by observing them engaging in a wide range of technology skills. I quickly learned who knew how to browse websites on the internet, who knew basic word processing skills, who knew how to type with the correct fingering, and who knew how to use their flash drives. Interestingly, while watching my students cut out their names for the collage, I realized that many of my students had better typing skills than cutting skills!
