The 5 W’s are the What, Who, Where, Why, and Wow to Personalize Learning. Learn what is and what is not personalized learning, learn how learners learn best, walk through the Three Stages of Personalized Learning Environments, understand how teacher and learner roles will change, and how to use assessment AS learning.
The 5 W's eCourse includes five webinars, online asynchronous discussions, web conferencing, chats, resources, rubrics, checklists, templates, transforming an activity to Stage One, and participation in a Community of Practice. The webinars will be archived for participants in different timezones.
Personalised learning could have some similarities with Piaget's idea of cognitive discovery learning, where you accommodate new ideas, assimiliate them into your existing schema and experience equilibration once you have mastered new learning, firstname.lastname@example.org
They seem to have a good basis for starting to learn about fractions from seeing pizzas and birthday cakes be cut and shared ...and of course visually measuring each piece down to the millimeter to be sure that it's been cut ...
Try this out at home with your child. It is an excellent mathematical education game. It is learning by engaging and interacting with things around you.
"Mummy likes pizza." "Yes, she does." "Are you going to eat all eight slices?" "Yes, dear, very probably." "Can I watch CBeebies now?" Sigh. Perhaps we could get the Tweenies to reach her about fractions.
Y E S ! SHE IS GOING TO EAT 1/2 of it and we can cut the rest of into quarters or eighths and share it.....
And tied up the box so we can't get into it - I have also labeled it "Time Capsule". Next year I am thinking of spray painting a box and making it a little fancier - in the busyness of the start of the school year, I had to grab what I ...
This is such a great idea. You could even leave different shaped cardboard boxes around and children can learn how to turn them into squares, triangles, etc................they create their own educational toys!
Colleen Almeida-Smith: It's never too early to read to kids Tulsa World Cheatham says her mom taught her fractions with a Hershey's chocolate bar. Is one-eighth larger than one-half? Which would you rather have?
Go for it. The Hershey Bar is a real sweet help for learning fractions. Watch their faces as you read to them. Most children will look at your face and watch your expressions. The more emotion you put into reading, the more absorbed they become.
The final report of the National Mathematics Advisory Panel paid close attention to “proficiency with fractions…for such proficiency is foundational for algebra and, at the present time, seems to be severely underdeveloped.
lima beans; spray one side red and one side white; then shellac to make great counters; ask a local pizza shop for new boxes; great for making cardboard pizzas for learning fractions; matchbox cars for sorting, counting, etc ...
Give your children resources such as Brain Box Maths and Fractions with Pizzas! Now watch their development! These resources and hundreds of others build an appreciation of the power and beauty of Mathematics.
So, pizza and brownies for lunch today! (Oh, and tea*.) Maths turned into yet another extended ... We've arrived at fractions. I love fractions, as all true mathematicians do. There is something fantastic about fractions.
The students worked in small groups to solve fraction pizza puzzles. As they worked we talked about how the more the pizza was divided, the smaller the pieces got. We talked about the importance of each piece being equal ...
Pizza Fractions is the type of resource used for pre-school learning at home. If you are like most parents who choose homeschooling, you want to give your child the best education you can find. That education will include instruction geared to meet the needs of your individual child. It will use the excellent teaching supplies and educational technology that is available to you, to motivate and aid your child in learning. Most importantly, it will bring you and your child even closer as you learn together.
Fantastic resources such as Pizza Fractions can be found at on thr website.
Long division like all mathematical skills are the result of early learning. In particular home school learning. The earlier you can start children by using any of the thousands of educational mathematics toys and games the better. GCSE maths can also be practised at home. Have a look at www.homeschoolsource.co.uk for lots of ideas.
Other educational games are Mathlink Cubes which is an interactive and visual way to get to grips with mathematics. This hands-on manipulative kit can be used to teach a range of maths concepts to all ages. email@example.com
8 ideas on how to keep kids learning throughout the summer The Olympian Registered dietitian and nutrition expert Keri Glassman has a wonderful list of healthful snacks for kids (including mini-pizzas and banana ice cream) at...
This is the time of the year when parents can use these effective strategies as home resources and teaching aids for natural easy learning.
However, they can be, particularly when they are given educational toys and games that make mathematics enjoyable and make sense. For example: Fraction Action Snap! Pizza Fraction Game! Maths Dice Numeracy Game. What about Maths Bingo - this helps with multiplaction and division!!!
Answer correctly and keep the cards, or if not return the card to the box. The player with the most cards at the end of the game wins!BrainBox Maths contains cards with brightly coloured illustrations designed to aid Key Stage 2 ...
This is a really helpful game and children will not feel pressured
Understanding fractions are critical to future math and algebra success. What simple things can be done to help young learners today for their success tomorrow?
A look at a recent study on how "humans naturally develop numerical concepts" which hypothesized "that an early understanding of fractions could predict how well a student would perform in algebra and general mathematics later on." The post provides four suggestions on how to put this into practice:
* Make it visual
* Make it reflective
* Make it practical
* Make it ubiquitous

GET THE MATH is a convergent media project designed to help middle and high school students develop algebraic thinking skills for solving real world problems.
This is such an important area for youngsters. Maths makes more sense when applied to the real world. If maths was taught in a more practical way, it would be rasier to learn: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Using Khan Academy to help teach high school Math students. Watch as one school uses Khan Academy to help students catch up with Math. Teachers have seen students stay engaged and do more homework as a result of using the Khan Academy.
