The Anatomy Of An Infographic: 5 Steps To Create A Powerful Visual

The Anatomy Of An Infographic: 5 Steps To Create A Powerful Visual | Applying tech integration | Scoop.it

Information is very powerful but for the most bit it is bland and unimaginative. Infographics channel information in a visually pleasing, instantly understandable manner, making it not only powerful, but extremely beautiful. Once used predominantly to make maps more approachable, scientific charts less daunting and as key learning tools for children, inforgraphics have now permeated all aspects of the modern world.

 

Infographics are excellent for finding and using "real world" data to create math problems.  But, have you ever thought of having students create their own infographics and use them to create their own math problems.  This could be a new and creative way to have students assimilate their learning of various math topics!

Kids Teaching Kids with Mathtrain.TV

I've recently discoveredMathtrain.TV. It's a website full of videos that kids have created to teach math skills/concepts to other kids. After reviewing several videos on the site, I've been impressed by the level confidence and understanding that some of the kids demonstrate. I feel very strongly that students need to understand the math they're learning rather than just being able to perform steps that lead to a "correct answer". One of the things I like most about this site is that some of the students really do demonstrate number sense and understanding in their videos. The problems I've viewed have all been rote and skill-based, but the way some of the students explain their thinking makes them worthwhile for helping students learn skills.

To say that the problems in our math education system are entirely due to the introduction of the new math curriculum is pretty irresponsible, given that any number of other factors could be contributing to the problem, writes David Wees.

It seems that everyone is talking about math reform these days. But, what does that really mean? What does it or should it look like? The truth is there are many facets of what should make up math reform including things like assessment, understanding how students learn, metacognition, technology and math curriculum. This post will focus on the need to rethink math curriculum and the role of technology in transforming math curriculum.
