6. 6. SO, I ASK MYSELF:“Do I need to make a copy of this?” 6
7. 7. CPM Class Use of PaperDaily work with Math Problems (on graph paper)HW RecordHW ChecksResource PagesMath Notes 7

9. 9. eBook RevieweBooks are a wonderful solution! 9
10. 10. Possible SolutionsDaily work with Math Problems...Use both sides of the paperuse Googledocs (G&C Tables, MN, LL1, Team Problems)use Geogebra (for graphing, instead of team posters)Forum for Team Brainstorms 10
11. 11. Possible SolutionsHW Records...[show paper record]use Google Calendar and electronic gradebookStickies (some kids use these as reminders) 11
12. 12. Possible SolutionsHW Checks...Use a moodle site (scan, save and post!) 12
13. 13. Possible SolutionsResource Pages...Most are already Geogebra Apps! [Newton’s Revenge,Eucalyptus Tree @ 1.1.2]Save to your student Blog (a great student portfolio) 13
14. 14. Possible SolutionsMath Notes and Learning Logs...Googledocs/ScreenShotsStudent Blogs [Jamie- MN; Sean- LL][link student blog toteacher blog]MathCasts using QuickTime Player, (screenr.com (no “e”)) 14
15. 15. Possible SolutionsCommunication...Teacher Blog (challenge is how to get traffic)Google Calendar (subscribe- directions on my Blog)Kids Reflecting for Conferences [in collections folder, “makea copy”]WallWishers (corkboard.me)Glogster.com 15

22. 22. “Finding the Balance”+/- of computers and tech use in a math classroom...+/- “Build a Bridge vs. Build a Wall”+/- Displaying kids’ work (online vs. on-wall)+/- “Would you like paper or plastic?”- internet bandwidth (need a paper or pdf back-up)+ eLearning [reference blog, calendar, eBook, HW, docs,etc.] 22

25. 25. ReﬂectionsHow to better meet my goals next year...Add “comments” on LL’s (GoogleDocs and Blogs) to make this a “livingdocument” and to generate traffic [have kids comment on kids’ blogs, too]Include Closure problems on a student’s Blog as a portfolio entryHave kids make more/embed Math Casts as LL entries, AND of better qualityUse my Blog moreBetter training on checking Google Calendar daily (Treasure Hunt...)Splashtop [use 2.1.2] 25
