eCourse Announcement: The 5 W's of Personalized Learning Starts Feb 7th

eCourse Announcement: The 5 W's of Personalized Learning Starts Feb 7th | Mathematics with Home School Source | Scoop.it

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.

Audrey's insight:

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, audrey@homeschoolsource.co.uk

I am taking the course right now and can't tell you how much it has made me think much deeper into my practice and how though I am familiar with and use personalized learning in my room, there is so much more to learn and grow from. This course is well worth the time and provides great collaboration!
Audrey's comment, April 17, 2013 8:35 PM
I would like to take part in the next course as I need to learn new ways of handling the amount of new research that I have to learn for tutoring, teaching and writing my lesson booklets.

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?
Audrey's insight:

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.

Audrey's insight:

 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.

Early Predictors of Math Success

Early Predictors of Math Success | Mathematics with Home School Source | Scoop.it
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
