Esther Kang's curator insight, November 12, 2013 10:52 AM

This article talks about how pictures can help students get rid of some anxiety about math. That is because pictures will help with mathematical imagery, and that is what's missing for students.  They cannot grasp the concepts easily because they cannot picture how it relates to anything in life.  This concept relates to why we use manipulatives in class.  In my first grade class, we always encourage students to use all kinds of counters because those help students to be less stressful.  Manipulatives can help students transfer the possible stress that they have to do all the math inside their heads to the manipulatives so they can do it easily.  I will definitely use more pictures and manipulatives in my future classroom.

How to use real-time technology in 1:1 classrooms

How to use real-time technology in 1:1 classrooms | Classroom Tools and Ideas | Scoop.it

During a visit to our 1:1 pilot team this week, I stopped into Ms. Strout’s English Language Arts classroom. What I observed left me searching for a phrase to describe it – Ms. Strout can tell me down the road whether the one I’ll use here is grammatically correct, but that comes later.

The room was largely silent, save for the sound tapping keyboards as each student in class worked on writing a narrative story. As I moved in more closely, I could see that the students were writing using Google Docs, the word-processing component of Google Drive that allows for cloud-based storage of documents and other tools. This is the suite of products that allows us to use a device like a Chromebook that has little native storage and a web-based operating system.
