  3. 3. Peercasting: Students Produce Math Support at NC Middle School How It Works 1. Algebra I students learn the material in the conventional way. 2. Students then make podcasts to help other students learn. 3. The podcasts are available during school hours on grant funded Apple iPod Touches. 4. Struggling students learn the material in a comfortable environment!
  4. 4. Peercasting: Students Produce Math Support at NC Middle School The Facts  Uses the concept of peer tutoring, with a technological twist.  “To me, sitting somewhere on your own, watching an iPod tutorial, is much better than sitting with an AP student who is trying to explain concepts to you.” says teacher Nancy Trollinger.  The podcasts only take about 15 minutes to make!
  5. 5. Peercasting: Students Produce Math Support at NC Middle School In My Opinion  Students won’t be bored with the typical means of tutoring  Students learn how new technologies can be in the classroom as well as for fun  Teachers have a second, third, and forth way of teaching required material.
  6. 6. Florida Districts Use Online Gaming in Summer Programs How it Works  Games in a 3-D environment for grades 3-12  Players carry out multi-layer missions  When obstacles are solved, points are earned allowing the students to move further in the game.
  7. 7. Florida Districts Use Online Gaming in Summer Programs The Facts  Students are literally begging their parents to attend more sessions!  “Our students commented that they never knew they could have this much fun at summer school," said Janet Boatman, math supervisor at the schools.
  8. 8. Florida Districts Use Online Gaming in Summer Programs In My Opinion  Students are learning in a way that they are having fun, which is what summer is all about!  Students should retain the information better, making them learn other material easier!  Teachers get the material covered in a fast and fun manner!
  9. 9. Videoconferencing Engages Students in Mobile County Public Schools How It Works  Alabama’s governor made a new program to allow students to “take” classes at schools all over the state.  Teachers host a videoconference and students join.  Students attend the classes and receive the needed credits toward their diplomas.
  10. 10. Videoconferencing Engages Students in Mobile County Public Schools The Facts  Provides students all over Alabama to receive access to advanced classes.  Helps to fill teacher vacancies and allow students to get the best education that they can.  Helps save money by not having to hire a teacher to teach gifted classes at every school.
  11. 11. Videoconferencing Engages Students in Mobile County Public Schools In My Opinion  Students are getting the best of both worlds. If they live in rural areas, they aren’t behind the learning curve for colleges.  It allows for large class sizes, but still makes it seem like students are getting one on one attention.  All students in the state can have the opportunity to take any class offered at any school.  I would love the opportunity to see one of these classes, and maybe one day host one!
  12. 12. In Conclusion  There are a variety of ways that technology is making it’s way into the classroom.  Students have more opportunities to learn different ways and that will help them in the long run!  Learning these technologies while in public schools will help them be ready for the work force, or college!
