Documenting Learning in Mathematics (or any other subject) using Padlet

Documenting Learning in Mathematics (or any other subject) using Padlet | Technology in Canadian Education | Scoop.it

I see many benefits in this process of documenting the learning and not just in Mathematics.

In this new era of collaborative teaching, it’s a great way of recording a lesson for other members of the team to view.As a Maths leader/mentor, it’s a useful way of modelling a lesson for teams to discuss.For students, it gives them access to previous learning that they can revisit at different times of the year to review/revise and support their learningFor assessment purposes, it can provide a record of the different stages of learning that took place during a lesson or series of lessons.the use of Padlet itself opens up personalised access for students to work at their own pace ( not evident in this lesson as it was more of a guided lesson rather than an independent task)

This is a great way to reference learning visually. Love the idea of using Padlet as an e-portfolio through the year!

I have recently been working with organizations on how the introduction of gamification into their training and development strategy plans for employee skill development.  The interesting thing as well is the application of the concepts to both hard and soft skills, that allow for returning to the results in the future as well as updating of skills as the individual progresses.

The Coin Toss and the Love Triangle - Information Theory: There are two flavors of uncertainty in our lives. Math helps with both.

The Coin Toss and the Love Triangle - Information Theory: There are two flavors of uncertainty in our lives. Math helps with both. | Technology in Canadian Education | Scoop.it

Chance appears to name a single, unitary thing. But its genealogy, its family history, turns out to be a tangled one. One way to understand its branching origins is to turn to literature: We may look, in turn, to two very different novels.

 

Anton Chigurh, the antagonist of Cormac McCarthy’s novel No Country for Old Men, forces his victims to guess the outcome of a coin toss, taking their life if they guess in error. McCarthy’s villain forces blind chance into his victims’ lives in the most brutal way. That chance is entirely contained, not in Chigurh, but in the toss—in nature itself. This is one source of uncertainty.

 

To understand the second source, we travel as far as possible from McCarthy’s American Southwest. The first volume of Henry James’s The Wings of the Dove ends with Milly Theale, a wealthy American heiress, visiting the National Gallery in London. To her surprise she sees an acquaintance, Merton Densher, in the company of her best friend, Kate Croy. The plot of the book from this point forward hinges on a single question: will Milly learn what the reader already knows—that Merton and

Kate are in love and secretly engaged to be married.

 

In the sequence, told from Milly’s point of view, we see how Kate—caught sharing an intimate afternoon—acts in such a way as to generate an alternate hypothesis for her friend: that Merton may well be keen on her, but that she, Kate, is not keen on him.

 

Here are uncertainties not otherwise found in nature: probabilities about probabilities, beliefs about beliefs held by others.
