Explain Your Thinking With Math Stations and the Explain Everything App ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog

Explain Your Thinking With Math Stations and the Explain Everything App ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog | Digital Technologies and Mathematics | Scoop.it

"Math in my classroom may look a little different in my room than other classrooms.  At first Glance, it looks a bit chaotic and messy.  You may not see me at first glance, I might be playing a math game with a student, or working with a small group on the carpet,  or going over the math concept that we are currently working on with a group that needs a little extra help at the guided reading table."

Wendy Farren-Price's insight:

This is a blog entry from Kristen Wideen, a teacher in Canada, who integrates a variety of technology into her lessons.  This is a blog entry about a mathematics lesson that she planned so the Year 2 students could work in pairs in the classroom while consolidating mathematic concepts.  She created an application (app) for each station so the students can work through the activity and then record their progress through an app called Explain Everything.  This activity can link to the Australian Curriculum processes and production skills because students can capture and display data for the teachers use.
