Math class needs a makeover | Education Resources | Scoop.it
Today's math curriculum is teaching students to expect -- and excel at -- paint-by-numbers classwork, robbing kids of a skill more important than solving problems: formulating them. In his talk, Dan Meyer shows classroom-tested math exercises that prompt students to stop and think.
(Filmed at TEDxNYED.)
Matt Miskelly's insight:

Saw Dan Meyer speak at CUE. He has a powerful message about how to make the math classroom more engaging and encouraging perplexity.

PowToon: AMAZING free animation tool

PowToon: AMAZING free animation tool | Education Resources | Scoop.it

...I have discovered a new creation site. Holy wow this is a cool tool. Basically, it makes you (and your students) look like rockstars when they present. You know all of those super cool animated videos that tell a story through drawings on a whiteboard? Now you can make those all on your own with a super simple drag-drop tool. Meet PowToon. It is awesome.
