Vendor’s Screencast

  1. 1. Vendor’s Screencast Brian D Edu 210 Flex Lab 11 @VerySmartBrian
  2. 2. Table of Contents 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Aroga H. T. Coutts Education Library Microsoft Online Reference Centre Pearson
  3. 3. 1. Aroga • Website: • Product: Chefren’s Pyramid – Link: Click HERE Aroga. (n. d.) Chefren’s Pyramid [Photograph]. Retrieved from: ID=5638
  4. 4. 1. Aroga • How I would use it – If computer labs still exist when I am teaching I would let my students play this game – I would use it as a review for unit exams, quizzes, midterms and final exams – It covers a majority of the concepts that are covered in math classes from grades 5-9 – I might even incorporate it into my lesson. The problems we encounter can be the notes for the students and they yell back the answer – It helps my students with mental math problems
  5. 5. 1. Aroga • Value to Students – “capture[s] kids attention for hours.” (Aroga, 2013). – A lot of kids are into gaming. – Students are studying and learning the material and not even realizing them. – I would consider this a behaviourist technology because they are rewarded with a new level, and it entertains them and great marks on their exams. – Covers a variety of topics like mental math which I encounter daily and not even in a math environment
  6. 6. 2. H. T. Coutts Education Library • Website: • Product: World History in Video – Link:
  7. 7. 2. H. T. Coutts Education Library • How I would use it – If I was a Social teacher I would use this site to find videos regarding the part of the course I am teaching – I could make notes based off the movies for my students – It gives me concrete examples to use in class and reference – It is a free resource – Instead of boring notes I can show my students something that will engage them – If Stalin is covered in class we can search videos of Stalin.
  8. 8. 2. H. T. Coutts Education Library • Value to Students – If students watch it in class they can go home and re watch it and take notes – They do not have to go hunting for the video – They can just do a basic search for it – It is a free resource – Student’s will not be bored with notes – They can relieve the experiences by watching historical videos
  9. 9. 3. Microsoft • Website: • Product: OneNote 2013 – Link: – Link:
  10. 10. 3. Microsoft • How I would use it – If possible I would use this to store my lesson plans and notes. – If I have access to a Smart Board I could hook the tablet up and manipulate various programs that would help my students learn math – It reduces the clutter on my desk instead of having a ton of binders I have everything in a safe and secure spot. – I can have everything running off my tablet and I can pass it around for students to see and play around with. – I can change my notes from semester to semester. If something doesn’t work I can find a new way to explain things – I can show them video’s
  11. 11. 3. Microsoft • Value to Students – When I was a student I often found that I was missing notes and that I had forgotten to put page numbers and dates – This will help students stay organized they can date all their notes, give them pages, and manipulate the any way they want. – They no longer need to carry around large unorganized binders – It saves them paper. Students usually throw the notes out after anyways so they can just delete them. This helps out the environment – This only really works if the student can bring in their own device
  12. 12. 4. Online Reference Centre • Website: • Product: General Search and T4T – Link:
  13. 13. 4. Online Reference Centre • How I would use it – I would use this as a resource site – If I were to end up teaching calculus I have access to one of the recommended textbooks. So I don’t have to carry a book around. – They give assessments so I have another possible exam bank – A lot of good materials for professional development including video’s and notes. – My students can use the site to search for questions they are having trouble in or other resources that can help them like in the area of trig functions
  14. 14. 4. Online Reference Centre • Value to Students – I mentioned before I had access to the textbook. In the general search area my students also get access to certain textbooks. They don’t have to carry textbooks around and this saves paper. – There are a lot of interactive activities for my students to do on their own time – There are some practice problems posted and notes. So if my notes are not good enough (and I would like them to tell me this) they have another place to get notes and see video’s
  15. 15. 5. Pearson • Website: • Product: MathXL – Link: – Video Link:
  16. 16. 5. Pearson • How I would use it – I can use it to assign homework. – Give students instant feedback – I can see what students are doing what and where they are having troubles – It tells me which areas I need to improve my teaching in – My students get help when I am not there – It breaks down areas my students need help in – If my students know how to add polynomials but they just can’t multiply polynomials it creates questions based on multiplication of polynomials for my students
  17. 17. 5. Pearson • Value to Students – Most times when students are doing homework when the teacher is not around. – They are given helpful hints on assignments and practice questions that guide them through how to solve – “Gets students involved with the questions.” (Pearson Canada, 2011) – Give students a study plan – Outlines a study plan telling students which areas they are good in and which areas need work. So they are not practicing the same problems they know over and over. – Instant feedback – Tailored to each individual – Identifies the step they are having problems with – Students can view the textbook instead of carrying it around – Work at their own pace – Builds students confidence
