I love how MaKey MaKey requires my students to seriously problem-solve issues. We start by learning about circuits, conductive materials, and just what a MaKey MaKey is. Following a few days of learning, we embark on a few challenges using different conductive materials and the piano app from the MaKey MaKey website. So much collaboration is needed in our groups to be successful. Of course, we have some problems working together so we stop, talk, and model how to work together when necessary.
