"As the CCSS has been crafted with principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to support inclusive access for all students with identified learning needs and/or disabilities, English Learners, linguistic minority students, as well as students from fragile families, many educators respond with concern that without technological resources, they feel challenged to design instruction to meet the diverse needs of their students. While technology can provide expanded access, there are many “no-tech and low-tech” options that many teachers utilize that are also UDL-considerate." - Jennifer Finney-Ellison

GE Teach is a phenomenal site, designed by an AP teacher to bring geospatial technologies into the classroom in a way that is incredibly user-friendly. This site allows you to use Google Earth with clickable layers. With multiple data layers of physical and human geography variables, this interactive globe puts spatial information in powerful, yet fun, student-inspired platform.  Click here for a video tutorial.

Do you need a set of interactive activities for your instruction or do you want to give your learners opportunities to practice their math skills? Here is a resource from the UK that gives you exactly that. You will also discover other activities for a variety of content areas.

 

Why UDL? Multiple means of representation and engagement.

Students often struggle with algebra. KnowRe is providing a free Algebra 1 game (in beta) that helps students review and learn math. This post provides an overview of KnowRe and states it is a "teaching tool that adapts to students on a personal level. It learns how well each person is understanding the concepts and adapts the curriculum based on that information."

You will also find a short video that shows how to use KnowRe and explains the components of the program.

To go directly to the KnowRe website, which bills itself as "Personalized math learning designed to help students succeed" go to https://www.knowre.com/. ;

That's brilliant. if education could be implanted into games. everybody would be so happy to learn. 

Alexis's curator insight, October 3, 2013 10:17 AM

This game understands students on a personal level. It adapts to their needs and teaches math at their speed. Its a great teaching tool and targets a "trouble area" for each student so they can work on their own pace. I could definitely see myself using this in the classroom.

America's Math Problem - Online Colleges | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

"Whether you love it or hate it, if you’ve partaken in the American school system, there’s no doubt that you’ve studied math in a wide range of forms and subjects. From algebra to geometry to the rigor of calculus, math is something that is a part of the average student’s life from kindergarten to college."

This infographic explores math in America. Did you know that 1 in 5 Americans is "functionally innumerate"? What does this mean? Sixty-two million Americans cannot do basic math such as adding fractions, working with measurement or doing whole number problems. 

Learn about how other countries compare to the U.S., how the U.S. compares to Singapore and South Korea in terms of "high achiever", what happens when we "hate" math, and what could be done to help the next generation succeed in math.

Anxiety Attack: Conquering the Fear of Math – SchoolBook

Anxiety Attack: Conquering the Fear of Math – SchoolBook | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
Two professors say we've got to stop sending messages to young children — especially girls — that math is something to fear. Humans are actually hardwired to think mathematically, they say.

At what age to learners experience fear of math? This post notes that "common wisdom" said that it not until sixth grade, but current research "demonstrates that children as young as first grade report math anxiety symptoms" and that the anxiety "affects their ability to learn math."

Learn more about the negative impacts of math anxiety as well as strategies that may be used to help learners.

Laura Jane's curator insight, December 16, 2013 2:03 PM

As Ms. Dichter already stated, this article draws an interesting comparison between our belief that math anxiety doesn't start until sixth grade with the overwhelming reality that we're seeing symptoms of anxiety as early as first grade. This SchoolBook article gives an interesting example, a 7-year-old girl named Zoey, who excels in reading, but struggles in math. The pressure that her parents put on her largely contributes to her anxiousness. The article gives a multitude of ideas for how to combat math anxiety, even beginning as young as first grade. Constantly providing reassurance, demonstrating patience, and exhibiting that it's okay to not get something on the first try are all suggestions that I hope to implement in my own classroom.

Apps in Education: Cool Maths apps for kids | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

Maths Apps are the ones most frequently searched for on this site. I sometimes think that if I had some of these apps I would have taken a greater interest in Maths as a kid. It was not that I was disinterested I just missed some of the basics. With some of these game based apps at least students can be engaged long enough to discovery some of the basic maths concepts.

Real World Math

Real World Math | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

"Real World Math: Using Google Earth in the Math Curriculum."   Back to my interdisciplinary approach to strengthening geographic education, image hearing that there is a Math teacher at your school using this, wouldn't you want to be a part of it?  Too often knowledge is taught within disciplinary silos; students need opportunities to make real world connections between the disciplines to breath life into how they are taught.  This site reminds me of http://www.googlelittrips.org/ which allows real world geography to be a part of literature/English classes.
