  • Technology integration is crucial in science and math because it allows students to build conceptual knowledge. <br />
  • [After this activity] <br /> Although we know the importance of integrating technology, there are issues that make technology integration challenging in both math and science. <br />
  • Accountability for Standards: <br /> The primary resource and guide for all mathematics education is NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. <br /> 6 crucial principles related to all school mathematics programs that enhance student learning: equity, curriculum, teaching, learning, assessment, and technology <br /> There are a total of 10 standards for Pre-K through 12th grade: 5 content standards (numbers and operations, algebra/geometry, measurement, data analysis, probability) and 5 process standards (problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, connections, representations) <br /> These principles and standards guide how to prepare students with the mathematical knowledge for a highly technological society & workplace <br /> Implementing the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics <br /> The previous mentioned standards call for teachers to change their teaching styles <br /> Technology makes learning more student-centered <br /> Technology allows for more visualization and makes the abstract more concrete <br /> 3 Implications for the Selection & Use of Technology in Math Education <br /> Appropriate combination of on & off computer activities <br /> Math tool not a pedagogical tool <br /> Tool for developing student thinking <br /> Accomplish these goals by using computer software and apps that engage students in meaningful problems & projects for long periods of time; must have coherence. <br /> Math Wars: Directed vs. Constructivist Teaching Strategies <br /> Constructivist teaching is student-centered teaching (group work, hands-on projects, discussions) <br /> Technologies available to support either method but approach by the teacher determines the integration strategies <br /> On-going debate between the two methods of instruction <br />
  • Bridge the Gap between Abstract and Concrete  virtual manipulatives (National Library of Virtual Manipulatives website) <br /> Representation of Mathematical Principles  visual depiction of abstract math concepts (graphing calculators) <br /> Mathematical Problem Solving  gather data to use; apply math to real-life situations (Geometer’s Sketchpad) <br /> Data-Driven Curricula  use statistics to support investigations (U.S. Census website, Microsoft Excel spreadsheets) <br /> Math Related Communication  social interactions; content math experts; sites for extra help (Ask Dr. Math) <br /> Skill Building and Practice  guided instruction; motivates practice (tutor.com, www.homeworkla.org) <br />
  • Accountability for Standards <br /> National research Council (NRC) published the National Science Educational Standards (NSES) in 1996. <br /> These are the guidelines for assessing student learning in science; teaching strategies, teacher PD, support for high-quality science education <br /> Promote inquiry-oriented science instriction; which is where technology can play an important and integral role <br /> Students can use innovative technology tools and resources such as search engines, databases, model building software, & handheld technologies as data collection tools to engage in real-world investigations and communicate their findings <br /> Narrowing Pipeline of Scientific Talent <br /> STEM Intiatives  to provide long-term economic & national security <br /> Need for Scientific Literacy <br /> Scientifically literate to make informed decisions that affect our country’s future <br /> Difficulties in Teaching K-8 <br /> Difficulty tecahing science at early levels due to teacher’s lack of deep understanding <br /> Soulution  Provide on-line PD opportunities <br /> Objections to Virtual Science Labs <br /> Doing science (hand-on) rather than hearing about it <br /> Virtual schools  computer simulations <br /> Solution  provide school lab experiences <br />
  • Authentic Online Projects <br /> Active scientific investigations improves students attitudes and understanding of scientific concepts <br /> Gives students experience with the scientific approach (asking questions, researchable hypotheses, collecting and analyzing data, communicating results) <br /> Scientific Inquiry Support <br /> Teachers do not allows have time to commit to long-term projects that encompass the entire scientific process. <br /> However, various technologies can provide support for specific elements of the scientific inquiry process. <br /> Support Science Skills and Concepts Learning <br /> On-line science lessons and games can provide motivational ways to supplement hands-on instruction <br /> Engineering Through Robotics <br /> Robotics allows for technology and engineering to be taught through science classes <br /> NASA is an excellent resource for lessons and competitions. <br /> Accessing Science Information and Tools <br /> The Internet is an unlimited source of data for classroom experiments and investigations, camps and competitions, and up-to-date science infprmation. <br />
  • Science and Mathematics Knowledge <br /> Math and science content constantly changes and teachers must constantly keep current on these changes. <br /> Crucial for early education teachers to become content experts in math and science. <br /> Pedagogical Knowledge <br /> Teachers are challenged to find the most effective, engaging, and motivational way to teach math and science while raising achievement. <br /> Online pedagogy is the most challenging and research is still being conducted on teaching practices for virtual environments. <br /> Schools are challenged by providing authentic learning experiences and preparing students for high-stakes testing. <br /> Technology Knowledge <br /> Teachers must become masters of the technology tools for science and math. <br /> They must become experts of virtual manipulatives, graphing calculators, spreadsheets, etc. <br /> Must learn how to use distance education tools also to stay updated on their content and pedagogy. <br />

  • Teaching and Learning with Technology in Mathematics and Science Instruction Presenter: Tonette Washington EDLD 590
  • Presentation Outcomes: • Recognize the implications for technology integration of each current issue faced by mathematics teacher. • Create key strategies for integrating technology into mathematics curricula. • Recognize the implications for technology integration of each current issue faced by science teacher. • Create key strategies for integrating technology into mathematics curricula. • Analyze given scenarios to identify examples of Tech-PACK needs and challenges that are specific to mathematics and science teachers.
  • Sharing & Engagement Activity Each individual needs to think of at least one strategy that he/she uses or would use to incorporate technology into science and math instruction.
  • Issues and Problems in Mathematics Instruction 1)Accountability for Standards 2)Implementing the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics 3)Math Wars: Directed vs. Constructivist Teaching Strategies
