  17. 17. Some Advice I’d Share • Conceptual Understanding – Could potentially lead to increased problem solving abilities.
  18. 18. Some Advice I’d Share • Design Opportunities for Students to “Create” – Highest Bloom’s Level – Produce products – More than just repeating memorized steps
  19. 19. Some Advice I’d Share • Student-Created Problems and Solutions – Teach classmates, younger classes, or parents – Ability to teach requires high level of understanding – PowerPoint, video, Glogster, Blabberize, Xtranormal
  20. 20. Some Advice I’d Share • Let Students Explore – Instruction booklets for video games have gotten smaller. Learn to play through exploration.
  21. 21. Some Advice I’d Share • Allow Students to Struggle. – Careful Not to Always Rescue them.

  33. 33. Follow-up Discussion Discuss using these kinds of activities and projects in the classroom. • Are there any benefits? • Are there any disadvantages? • How realistic would this be in your teaching situation? • How do you think the students would react to being assessed with these kinds of strategies?
  34. 34. Although teachers may not be comfortable using technology it is important to consider allowing students to use it to communicate their understanding as they are often more naturally able to more fully express themselves with digital media.
  35. 35. Related Resources The following workshop resources may be helpful. • Multiple Representations of Mathematic Understanding • Multiple Representations of Language Arts Understanding
