    1. 1. Math and Web 2.0 By Alec Timmerman
    2. 2. What is web 2.0 <ul><li>&quot;Web 2.0&quot; refers to the second generation of web development and web design that facilitates information sharing, interoperability, user-centered design[1] and collaboration on the World Wide Web. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>wikipedia.org </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Interacting instead of being acted upon </li></ul><ul><li>Search and find becomes create </li></ul><ul><li>Unidirectional goes to bidirectional </li></ul>
    3. 3. Why now and why AHS? <ul><li>It’s the pedagogy that matters </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Is technology just another teaching tool irrelevant of pedagogy? </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Our pedagogy is sound. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Collaboration, situated learning, problem based learning, higher order thinking,scaffolding, formative assessments, positive interdependence, and on and on. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Could technology be a better way to deliver the pedagogy we know works? </li></ul>
    4. 4. Brief Mention of TPACK
    5. 5. TPACK <ul><li>Content knowledge and pedagogy equal weight to technology </li></ul><ul><li>Knowledge bases do not act in isolation </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>How we use technology affects how we learn content </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Someone skilled in mathematics, using technology, and education techniques will be the most effective? </li></ul>
    6. 6. www.forestpark.pps.k12.or.us/teachers/BloomsPoster.pdf
    7. 7. Bloom’s 2.0 <ul><li>Creating as highest level </li></ul><ul><li>Verbs rather than nouns </li></ul><ul><li>Custom made for web 2.0? </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.odu.edu/educ/roverbau/Bloom/blooms_taxonomy.htm </li></ul>
    8. 8. Why Web 2.0 <ul><li>We use a lot of technology, but how much do our kids use? </li></ul><ul><li>Many of our kids are not engaged in school, but they are engaged social networking </li></ul><ul><li>Web 2.0 is intensely social </li></ul><ul><li>Expand their world view </li></ul>
    9. 9. Why Web 2.0 <ul><li>We learn when we create </li></ul><ul><li>Promotes self monitoring and positive interdependence </li></ul><ul><li>Extend learning beyond the school </li></ul><ul><li>Student centered classroom </li></ul>
    10. 10. Web 2.0 tools <ul><li>Blogs </li></ul><ul><li>Content Management Systems </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Moodle, joomla, Blackboard(WebCT) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Podcasts/Webcasts </li></ul><ul><li>Screencasts </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Jing, Camtasia </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>VOIP (Skype) </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Used to Skype my wife from Baghdad in 2005! </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Google Docs </li></ul><ul><li>Wikis </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Expert Voices </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Slideshare/fileshare </li></ul>
    11. 11. Tools <ul><li>In the following slides, I will present a brief description of each tool </li></ul><ul><li>Accompanying this presentation are screen capture videos for each topic. (SCV) </li></ul><ul><li>SCV’s will give more detail on the how to’s </li></ul>
    12. 12. Blogs <ul><li>Comment Blog </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Teacher created and controlled, hand out lessons, assignments, etc. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>I tried this last year and it stunk! </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Class Blog </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Class and teachers act as authors </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Teacher guides the content </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>This is what I want to try this year </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>The Mother Blog </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Each student has their own blog, interconnected with the teachers blog. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Teacher blog feeds the students blog, but students have autonomy over their blog </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Somewhat like Ning, which I will be using </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Kuropatwa--- http://adifference.blogspot.com/search/label/best%20practice </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
    13. 13. The Scribe Post <ul><li>Foundation of a student centered blog </li></ul><ul><li>Rotational basis, students post the days lesson, their understanding of it, and questions or concern </li></ul><ul><li>Other students can comment and anonymously edit/help the poster </li></ul><ul><li>Useful engagement of students, and also used by students as a study tool </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>See examples in the screen capture videos. </li></ul></ul></ul>
    14. 14. CMS <ul><li>Can be similar to a blog </li></ul><ul><li>Threaded discussions are usually the foundation </li></ul><ul><li>More educational functionality than a blog </li></ul><ul><li>Allows instructor to manage assignments, assessments, projects, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>School district will provide you training in Moodle. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>I have tried moodle, along with three other math teachers in the district. I am not going to use it this semester </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
    15. 15. Wikis <ul><li>Editable web pages </li></ul><ul><li>Can be monitored/controlled </li></ul><ul><li>Group work </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Wiki example http://am40s.pbworks.com/browse/#view=ViewAllPages </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
    16. 16. Wikis and expert voices <ul><li>An example of a Web 2.0 assignment </li></ul><ul><li>Students demonstrate their own learning by creating something for others to learn by </li></ul><ul><li>Seems like it would be reasonable to create one of these for each student in a semester! </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Source- Darren Kuropatwa http://adifference.blogspot.com </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Building Learning Communities 2007 </li></ul>
    17. 17. Expert Voices from the “Difference” math blog <ul><li>The Assignment </li></ul><ul><li>Think back on all the things you have learned so far this semester and create (not copy) four problems that are representative of what you have learned. Provide annotated solutions to the problems; they should be annotated well enough for an interested learner to understand and learn from you. Your problems should demonstrate the upper limit of your understanding of the concepts. (I expect more complex problems from a student with a sophisticated understanding than from a student with just a basic grasp of concepts.) You must also include a brief summary reflection (250 words max) on this process and also a comment on what you have learned so far. </li></ul>
    18. 19. Podcasts/Webcasts <ul><li>Not covered in depth in this report </li></ul><ul><li>Easy and free/cheap with tools like audacity, Quicktime, or garage band </li></ul><ul><li>Students realize that activities like this are accessible to them </li></ul><ul><li>Can produce student radio, poetry reading, tutorials </li></ul><ul><li>When I went to Iraq I “podcasted” me reading bedtime stories and Avery was able to listen to them every night. </li></ul>
    19. 20. Screencasts <ul><li>Free with Jing </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>5 minute limit on each video </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Camtasia </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Would work awesome in conjunction with Smartboard Notebook </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Both for student demonstrations and teacher lectures </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>You can learn the basics in 10 minutes </li></ul><ul><li>www.mathcasts.org </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Awesome site for teacher development, posting student work, or teacher demonstrations </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
    20. 21. Google Docs <ul><li>Perfect for group work </li></ul><ul><li>You can actually track who contributed what and when </li></ul><ul><li>Ubiquitous </li></ul><ul><li>Gmail is allowed at school! </li></ul><ul><li>Built in chat functionality allows students to speak synchronously </li></ul>
