Using iPads During Math Stations I am continually trying to think of ways to use the iPads in a producing or student creation way, rather than a "lets play a game" kind of way. I am also trying to be as paperless as possible this year, so using the iPads is a win, win situation. I share the 20 iPads with another teacher so in all honesty, I only have 10 during math and I usually use 4 with my guided math groups, which leaves me 6 for math stations. My students are partnered up and do 2 stations a day. I have 10 stations that I change every 2 weeks. I try to link my math stations to what we are currently learning about and a review of things we have already learned. iPad Domino Measuring Math Station Students will be given dominoes, the "I Can Card" and 2 iPads (one for each student) in their Math Station bucket. iPad Problem Solving Station Students will be given the "I Can Card" and 2 iPads (one for each student) in their Math Station bucket.

EasyBib: Free Bibliography Generator - MLA, APA, Chicago citation styles Use Creative Math Sites to Support Struggling Students - San Jose ESL Math language can cause problems for many English language learners. Math word problems are especially difficult because the language around the word problem can often times be a challenge. As a very basic example, look at the many synonyms for "DECREASE": subtract, take away from, lowered by, reduce, minus, etc. Then there are the NON-MATH words in the problems. Look at this basic math problem for elementary school: Five boys and three girls went on a field trip. First problem--the problem starts off with BOYS and GIRLS and then combines the two to make CHILDREN. Since math becomes increasingly more difficult as ELLs move on to middle school and high school, the same problem still faces them---the language of math. The video sites below offer more support for struggling students both ELLs and EOs. Both sites are free of course though they do want students and teachers to register. Denise

The 5 Cs in Education: What If… Sketchnoting in the Process After my sketchnoting workshop at Miami Device, I was asked to record my process of CREATING the sketchnotes. I used Airserver to mirror my iPad display to my laptopUsed Screenflow to record myself sketching the main points of the presentationUsed Screenflow to speed up the recorded footage from 30+ minutes to 2.5 minutesExported, then imported into iMovie to add credtits and music This was the first time doing a screencast this way for me…there are a few kinks that I still need to work out (how to NOT record the screenflow toolbar). [The sketchnotes created in the video below were NOT created live, but AFTER, I had created the slide deck already} Here is the slide deck for the presentation Related Sketchnoting and Yet Another Dimension Experimenting with sketchnoting as note taking and as visual summaries and slide design has been an area of intense interest for me over the past six months. 24. In "Collaboration" Evolution of Note Taking: New Forms Note taking is a big topic among educators.
