The Simpsons Has Been Tricking You Into Learning Math for Decades | Underwire | Wired.com | Classroom Tech for Teachers | Scoop.it

It’s no secret that the longest-running American sitcom is also one of the smartest. Academics have pored over The Simpsons for its insights into philosophy and psychology, but it took physicist Simon Singh, the author of previous books about cryptography, the Big Bang, and Fermat’s Enigma, to tap a vein of knowledge that runs even deeper in the animated world of Springfield: math.

 

In the engaging (and educational) The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets, Singh delves into the academic backgrounds of some of the most poindextrous Simpsons writers -- Al Jean, J. Stewart Burns, Jeff Westbrook, and David X. Cohen among them -- who are equipped with advanced degrees in math and science. Naturally, they’ve been using their platform to advance what Cohen calls "a decades-long conspiracy to secretly educate cartoon viewers."

 

Hoyvin-glavin! Click through the gallery for some key Simpsons moments of witty math infusion.

Augmented Reality Brings New Dimensions to Learning - Edutopia

Augmented Reality Brings New Dimensions to Learning - Edutopia | Classroom Tech for Teachers | Scoop.it

"Imagine living in the magical world of Harry Potter, where the school hallways are lined with paintings that are alive and interactive. Now imagine creating an atmosphere like that for your students. Augmented Reality (AR) allows educators and students to do just that: unlock or create layers of digital information on top of the physical world that can be viewed through an Android or iOS device."

How Technology Has Changed Our Idea of ‘Knowledge,’ and What This Means for Schools

How Technology Has Changed Our Idea of ‘Knowledge,’ and What This Means for Schools | Classroom Tech for Teachers | Scoop.it

The fact that knowledge is no longer fixed, but constantly evolving, and the speed at which new knowledge appears online have contributed to our sense of “information overload,” Weinberger said. And that leads to another way that our evolving sense of knowledge is transforming how we learn: We must learn to accept that true mastery is impossible.

This post comes out of Australia, and the school year begins in February...so for some of us this may be a bit late (or very early) but the 20 quick actions they suggest may still be of use this year. Several of the ideas are listed below. Each is explained in more detail in the post and in some cases links are provided for additional resources.

Action #1 Set up your classroom in an “active learning” format (15-30 minutes).

Action #5 Develop a plan for quieting the class (10 minutes a day for a few days)
Action #9 Create a list of “question words” that help you with effective questioning (10 minutes) (This one has a link to a resource on how to practice effective questioning.)

Action #20 Use a learning styles assessment (1 hour)
Check out the post for the 16 additional suggestions.

Girls Aren't Bad at Math and neither are you

Girls Aren't Bad at Math and neither are you | Classroom Tech for Teachers | Scoop.it
Stop saying you are “bad at math.” Just stop. I don’t understand how otherwise well-educated people can be so comfortable casually proclaiming their lack of knowledge of a basic subject. In America saying “I’m bad at math” is a common joke.

As more research proves tha fact that math is all about hard work, preparation, and self-confidence. Girl Math is a bad joke.
