Transcript

  • 1. Larry Copes I can help you envision and implement, through eLearning, a more mature and civil global society.
  • 2. Adapt school curricula to support different learning styles
    • This prototype web site on ellipses was designed in 1996 using only html.
    • Formal, investigative, and modeling “tours” visit concept pages in different orders and with different transitions.
    • The site still gets more than 200 hits per month.
  • 3. Encourage learning in the context of problems
    • A grant supported the development of this web site on discrete mathematics .
    • Launch problems led to exploration of concepts, practice, and extensions.
    • Although old, it shows that problem-based learning for creative problem solving can be implemented online.
  • 4. Use games to teach pattern recognition and independent thinking
    • There are many online simulations of this game .
    • By not judging answers, this version supports players’ emotional comfort and independent thinking.
  • 5. Use simulations for learning to experiment and investigate
    • The Teaching Simulator™ puts players in a simulated classroom.
    • Players experiment to learn how decisions affect their class.
    • The simulations induce powerful discussions of both pegagogy and content.
  • 6. Use games to teach critical thinking as well as content
    • The Odysseys2sense site hosts game-like forums concerning international issues as well as course-related content.
    • Players earn power by posting anonymous entries that other players rate highly.
    • Rating criteria include completeness, accuracy, curiosity, critical thinking, helpfulness, and civility.
  • 7. More about me
    • I hold a PhD in mathematics education.
    • I’ve taught mathematics, computer science, and math education.
    • As a freelance editor, I’ve edited secondary mathematics texts and other materials.
    • I can program in many computer languages, including PHP and Flash, but my main strength is as the idea person.
  • 8. How can I help you envision and implement, through eLearning, a more mature and civil global society?
