Digitally Speaking in Math with Voice Threads


As I was creating my codes, I decided to integrate Voice Thread into the activity as well. My co-worker introduced me to Voice Thread last week. Voice Thread is an engaging digital learning tool students can use to communicate in class. Voice Thread is a audio blog that allow students to record text and audio comments about uploaded images or sites.The basic account is free and allows you to create up to 5 threads.

I created a few threads for my students to use as Exit Slips for class next week. I have included an example below. In this example, we will a Order of Operations Voice Thread to review Order of Operations with students. The task will be for students to create a mnemonic device to remember the Order of Operations.




A TwitFriend sent me this link with good resources on Voice Threads. Check it out if you are interested in more information.

Micro-Blogging and Writing in Math with Twitter

I am so excited to begin writing in math using micro-blogging digital tools. Our class will be using Twitter to begin writing in Math . I created a class Twitter account and came up with 25 writing prompts for students to write on. I will randomly give each student a different prompt to add variety to our Twitter page. Students will tweet their prompt and other students will reply to their tweets.

Step 1: Create a class Twitter account.
Step 2: Have students create a Twitter account.
Step 3: Assign a time to integrate writing into the classroom.
Step 4: Create prompts for your class to tweet on...Click here for a project with rubric: Twitter Math Prompts.

Tips:
~Protect your tweets and make them private.
~Have students create an account using at least thier name, so you can recognize them for assessment purposes.

Other ways to use Twitter in Math!

1.    Data Project: To collect data to create bar graphs and circle graphs. Students will poll followers on Twitter to collect their data.
2.    Polling: Create a twitter poll to collect data for graphing, prior knowledge assessment, etc. http://twtpoll.com/ (Starts at $9 per month).
3.    Closures: Students tweet a summary of what they learned in class on a specific topic/concept
4.    Vocabulary Reviews: Give each student a different vocabulary word and have them tweet the definition, a picture, etc.

Using Digital Tools to Integrate Blooms Taxonomy


I love to integrate multiple educational researched based activities in my daily lessons. This is an example of a lesson that incorporates the 6 (six) levels of Blooms Taxonomy using digital tools

Visit my article on Edudemic: http://edudemic.com/2012/11/35-digital-tools-that-work-with-blooms-taxonomy/
Tweet it! Like it! Pin it!


A Blooms Taxonomy Math Lesson on Systems of Linear Equations

Remember: Create a mindmap to demonstrate when isthe best situation to use each method for solving systems of linear equations.

Understand: Tweet your favorite method to solve systems of linear equations and explain why.

Apply: Given a system, use ScreenChomp to solve ande xplain the steps to solving the system of linear equations.

Analyze: Create a Stickyboard to explain thedifference between the methods of solving linear equations.

Evaluate: Assess using Socrative to determinewhether or not you understand how to solve systems of linear equations.

Create: Use Sock Puppet to compose a skit on the3 methods to solve a system of linear equations.
