In 1964 Marshall McLuhan said "The medium is the message." McLuhan was interested in the subconscious messages conveyed by the new methods of communication of the day. In our classrooms, McLuhan might ask what messages are our students receiving from the ways and means we use to teach them? Are you conscious of the incidental learning going on in your classroom? How can you convey these subconscious messages deliberately to amplify your student's learning? Today's student brings with them a wealth of technological knowledge that they have learned on their own. As Educators what message do we want to deliver in our classes? What media are we using to deliver that message to an increasingly more demanding audience. Students need to work harder and as educators we cannot force them to do so. By offering learning that intrinsically motivates students we will prepare them to be learners in an ever changing environment.

  • In making the slidecast I realized that I talked too fast and that it would be next to impossible to link the slides to the audio. I have taken the easy road and split the audio evenly and the slides will not be in sync. Sorry it is not a perfect solution.

  40. 40. (Principle 1) TEACHERS MUST ENGAGE STUDENTS! PRECONCEPTIONS Students’ Errors and Misconceptions Based on Previous Learning Students come to the classroom with conceptions of numbers grounded in their whole-number learning that lead them astray in the world of rational numbers; e.g. multiplying always makes numbers bigger. x = Source: How Students Learn Photos Source Title: Nov 15-9:27 PM (2 of 9)
  41. 41. UNDERSTANDING REQUIRES FACTUAL (Principle 2) KNOWLEDGE AND CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORKS The Knowledge Network: New Concepts of Numbers and New Applications What are the core ideas that define the domain of rational numbers? What are the new understandings that students will have to construct? How does a beginning student come to understand rational numbers?

  42. 42. A METACOGNITIVE APPROACH (Principle 3) ENABLES STUDENT SELF-MONITORING Metacognition and Rational Number A metacognitive approach to instruction helps students monitor their understanding and take control of their own learning. The complexity of rational number—the different meanings and representations, the challenges of comparing quantities across the very different representations, the unstated unit—all mean that students must be actively engaged in sense making to solve problems competently. We know, however, that most middle school children do not create appropriate meanings for fractions, decimals, and percents; rather, they rely on memorized rules for symbol manipulation.
