  • 4. Technology Tools to Increase Students’ Motivation to Review Math<br />The second grade students at Happy Elementary School are going on a field trip. There are 42 students on the first bus and 39 students on the second bus. How many second graders are going on the field trip? Show your work!<br />While there is simply nothing exciting about this problem, having the math problem projected on the ActivBoard and giving the students blank paper to show their work seems to be very motivating to them. Who would’ve guessed?!!  Karin Jones<br />Sample math question created by <br />Karin Jones, 2/28/10.<br />
  • 5. Technology Tools to Increase Students’ Motivation to Practice Language Skills<br />Which is correct?? <br />a or an<br />_______sunflower<br />Again, this is a standard language skill lesson for second graders, but presenting it with a twist of technology adds interest and motivation for the students to ‘have fun’ while they are learning! Karin Jones<br />Sample language lesson prompt created by Karin Jones, 2/28/10.<br />
  • 6. Increasing Students’ Motivation to Learn with Discovery Education<br />Discovery Education is a phenomenal site that can be used to introduce or review many educational concepts with video clips and images. The students love it! We use it most often with Science and Social Studies concepts, but it addresses many areas.

  • 7. Increasing Students’ Motivation to Read with Technology Assistance<br />Students and adults of all ages can’t help but be excited to listen to some of today’s actors and actresses read books to us that can be found on our very own library shelves. <br />Karin Jones<br />Storyline Online http://www.storylineonline.net Screen clipping taken: 2/28/2010, 3:01 PM<br />
  • 8. Increasing Students’ Motivation to Read with Technology Assistance<br />Once you select the book you would like to listen to, you will see the many options available to you: listen to the book and/or choose an activity related to the story. What a fun way to get kids excited about books and reading! Many times listening to these stories has led my students to find these books in our library on a future trip!

  • 9. Increasing Students’ Motivation to Read with Technology Assistance<br />If you’ve never had the pleasure of reading or listening to one of Robert Munsch’s books, you are missing out! I encourage you to either listen to one of these or look for one in your local library. Mr. Munsch shares a fun sense of humor with his readers and you will be tempted to laugh out loud as the silliness gets out of control. Happy reading!
