Info Smackdown !

Mrs. Layne adapted Brenda Boyer’s Search App Smackdown (see the article in School Library Journal) to work with Dr. Newett’s classes on using DISCUS. She created a flipped lesson in which students watched a short video created by her to learn the basics of using three databases in DISCUS. When they arrived in the library, students were randomly split into groups. Groups read questions (one at a time) and competed to see who could earn the most points. You can view the smackdown in the video below.
