    1. 1. Technology Lesson Mindy Ward Cohort 1 Provo District Spring Creek Elementary School
    2. 2. Mrs. Stilson’s 3 rd Grade Class <ul><li>27 kids </li></ul><ul><li>Stability Balls </li></ul><ul><li>Promethean Boards </li></ul><ul><li>Classroom audio system </li></ul><ul><li>iMac computers for every 2 students </li></ul>
    3. 4. Click to view video.
    4. 5. Technology Lesson <ul><li>Content: fractions </li></ul><ul><li>PowerPoint </li></ul><ul><li>Promethean Board </li></ul>
    5. 6. Purpose <ul><li>Standard/core: Standard 1, objective 2, indicator b </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Standard 1 Students will understand the base-ten numeration system, place value concepts, simple fractions and perform operations with whole numbers. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Objective 2 Use fractions to communicate and compare parts of the whole. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Define regions and sets of objects as a whole and divide the whole into equal parts using a variety of objects, models, and illustrations. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Learning goal: Students will understand that they can make fractions out of anything. </li></ul>
    6. 8. are everywhere! Fractions
    7. 10. <ul><li>How many pieces make the whole? </li></ul>
    8. 11. <ul><li>12 pieces = the whole </li></ul>1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
    9. 12. <ul><li>How do we write </li></ul><ul><li>this as a fraction? </li></ul>
    10. 14. <ul><li>If we eat one piece , </li></ul><ul><li>what fraction of the </li></ul><ul><li>bar is left? </li></ul>
    11. 16. <ul><li>Can we make fractions out of other things ? </li></ul>
    12. 18. <ul><li>Anything else? </li></ul>
    13. 20. <ul><li>You can make fractions out of anything ! </li></ul>
    14. 21. Manipulatives <ul><li>At this point, I used magnets to stick 7 leaves to the board </li></ul><ul><li>As a class, we made them into a fraction (3/7 of the leaves are orange) </li></ul>
    15. 22. Manipulatives <ul><li>Then I passed out small cut-outs of varying shapes/colors </li></ul>
    16. 23. <ul><li>Find the hidden fraction in your set of things. </li></ul>
    17. 24. <ul><li>Draw a picture of the fractions on your worksheet. </li></ul>
    18. 25. What Went Well <ul><li>Students loved having their own set of manipulatives </li></ul><ul><li>Students could visually see the fraction </li></ul>
    19. 26. What Didn’t Go Well <ul><li>The activity was looking at pictures and writing a fraction, while the assessment was making pictures when given a fraction- opposites! (assess what was taught next time!) </li></ul><ul><li>Wasn’t as good on the Promethean Board as I wanted to be (Practice next time!) </li></ul>
    20. 27. Principles of Effective Technology Integration <ul><li>Student Use of Technology : Effective technology integration typically involves students (as opposed to just the teacher) in actively using the technology. </li></ul><ul><li>Didn’t meet this one- students should have used the Promethean Board- not just teacher </li></ul><ul><li>2. Technology Use is Essential : Effective technology integration is essential not peripheral to the learning activity. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>It was essential to make sure all students could see the detailed fraction images in the book I scanned pages from </li></ul></ul></ul>
    21. 28. Principles of Effective Technology Integration <ul><li>Focus on Learning Task : Effective technology integration focuses on the learning task and not the technology. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Success! The Promethean Board was not the focus- it was the helper! </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Added Value : Effective technology integration facilitates learning activities that would be more difficult or impossible without the technology. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It would have been harder (if not impossible) for all students to see the fraction pictures without the Promethean Board </li></ul></ul>
    22. 29. <ul><li>The End </li></ul>
