Math Interactives

Math Interactives | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it

Description from the Internet Scout Project

 

Math Interactives is part of a larger site, called LearnAlberta.ca, which is "designed and developed to assist kindergarten to Grade 12 teachers in Alberta locate and utilize digital learning and teaching resources. The design of the site is reflective of how teachers think and work in an online environment." Visitors interested in multiple ways to learn math will love the print and video math activities available on the site.

 

There are four categories from which visitors can choose, on the left hand side of the homepage: Number, Pattern and Relations, Shape and Space and Statistics and Probability. Each section contains a video and an interactive that encourages students to explore the concept in question. For example, students may learn about linear equations through a video about the costs of feeding animals at the Calgary Zoo, and later come up with their own linear equations to predict the costs, accounting for price of food, amount needed, and delivery fees.

Web 2.0 sites become more useful as the number of users grow. Fortunately for teachers, there's loads of free educational 2.0 applications that can be utilized in the classroom to help students research, collaborate and share what they've learned.

 

Hats off to British educator, Terry Freedman, who has solicited lessons from 94 teachers from around the world and edited them into a free downloadable book Download Amazing Web 2 Projects 2 online version (2 MB pdf) Hint: If you're not following Terry on Twitter (as I do) here's his Twitter link.

Flip Your Classroom - Get Your Students to Do the Work

Flip Your Classroom - Get Your Students to Do the Work | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it

Here's a 7-step how to that flips the delivery of the lesson to homework.

 

Recently I shared lunch with colleague and friend, Mike Gwaltney. He teaches in a variety of blending settings both in class and online. We got into an interesting discussion about ways to deliver instructional content and learning process both in and outside the classroom. The conversation quickly turned to the notion of "flipping the classroom." This is the idea that teachers shoot videos of their lessons, then make them available online for students to view at home. Class time is then devoted to problem solving - with the teacher acting as a guide to teams of students. It's a great approach that flips the delivery of the lesson to homework - it's like a TiVo time shift that can reshape your classroom.
