Keep maths fun and interesting.  Many learners are taken to advanced levels well before they're ready for it, struggle and are then put off for life. 

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, November 29, 2013 11:27 PM

Some good, simple maths apps here - most are for lower year levels but could prove useful for skill practise and/or differentiation in the classroom.

Funny.

5 Amazing Ways to Collaborate with Another Class - EdTechDiva | Technology in K-12 Education | Scoop.it

"“Ms. Clark, when are we going to do that again?” Nothing makes me happier as an educator than hearing those words – and lately I have been hearing them a lot! It is not the question as much as the look on the faces of my students that I enjoy the most. It’s the inspiring glow of engagement and enthusiasm and the fire in their eyes that makes me want to keep trying new projects. Their relentless desire to do collaborative-based work is proof that they enjoy the journey, the connections and the role of play in their learning. One of the thrills about being an educator in 2013 is this ability to redefine the typical classroom landscape in this way. This year we did it campus wide with some pretty amazing projects that helped everyone see the value in collaborating, and the immense power of thinking outside the box – in this case, I literally mean the constrictive box of the traditional classroo"

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | Technology in K-12 Education | Scoop.it

"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs.

 

In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves.

 

Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."
