Thunderbolt Kids Home Read a Book Meet the kids How to Conduct QM Research Linking Online Course Design and Implementation to Learning Outcomes 2011 QM Research Grant supported study done by Swan, Bogle, Matthews, & Day at University of Illinois/Springfield The Community of Inquiry (CoI) framework (Garrison, Anderson & Archer, 2000), on the other hand, does address learning processes. It addresses them, moreover, from a collaborative constructivist point of view. Building from the notion of social presence, the CoI framework represents online learning experiences as a function of relationships among three presences: social, teaching, and cognitive. The CoI framework views all three as working together to support deep and meaningful learning processes. Area of a Circle Students use their knowledge of the relationship between the circumference and diameter of a circle to see why the area of a circle is πr2. Guiding questions encourage students to think about issues of accuracy and informally introduce the idea of the circle as a limiting shape. The lesson involves visualisation and explanation.

Emma — EMMAths: Learning and Teaching Emma works in an FE/HE College in Northern Lincolnshire where she teaches maths and PGCE students. Previously, she worked in an Inner London Secondary, was Head of Maths at an 11-16 school in Grimsby and coordinated GCSE and Functional Skills maths at a sixth form college. Emma is a “credible specialist” for Pearson/Edexcel, specialising in Post-16 mathematics, delivering CPD across the country (and the world!). Emma specialises in motivation; in ensuring that students have belief and confidence in their abilities. She infects her fellow teachers with that confidence, and shows her students that it's good to be a geek! Emma wants to spread the "Maths Love", and help everyone that she can - teachers and students alike.

Open Educational Resources (OER): Resource Roundup Resources by Topic: OER, a part of the global open content movement, are shared teaching, learning, and research resources available under legally recognized open licenses -- free for people to reuse, revise, remix, and redistribute. Why are OER important? High-quality OER can save teachers significant time and effort on resource development and advance student learning inside and outside the classroom. Further, open sharing of resources has the potential to fuel collaboration, encourage the improvement of available materials, and aid in the dissemination of best practices. For more about the potential of OER, check out "5-Minute Film Festival: Why Open Education Matters," by Edutopia's VideoAmy.

: 5 Maths Gems #112 Welcome to my 112th gems post. This is where I share some of the latest news, ideas and resources for maths teachers. 1. Classic Errors I like this activity suggested by James Tanton (@jamestanton). James asks 'Would taking classic and tempting errors "head-on" be a worthwhile classroom activity and discussion?'. It's worth reading the responses in the thread. 25 Best Sites for Free Educational Videos RefSeek's guide to the 25 best online resources for finding free educational videos.

For this activity I took a look at MERLOT II. MERLOT is a system built to help teachers develop evaluations for their students along with providing a peer review process for online teaching material. MERLOT has premade lesson plans and actives a teacher can use along with providing templates for teachers to create their own lesson plans. There is a browse option, where students can browse by subject matter and search for a more specific topic within that subject. I looked through the Science and Technology and fond a lesson on cells called “Cells Alive!” There are even comments and reviews you can read through to see how others used this information and what they did and did not like about it. Which is also helpful, as different teachers and students will have different needs and the reviews are a great way for them to find out what does and does not meet their needs. by smt210 Apr 16
