  8. 8. Adaptive/assistive devices for students with special needs<br />Software that can talk to students with visual impairments, or who cannot read<br />Computers that can enlarge images for students with visual impairments <br />Special lessons will be made for students with physical disabilities who cannot participate in hands on lessons or experiments in science class. <br />Adapting math lessons to teach students with learning disabilities more “real life examples” to help them grasp the concept <br />Teaching hands on whenever possible, for example going outside in science or math class<br />
  9. 9. How can students and teachers can practice socially responsible, ethical, and legal use of information from various technology in math and science?<br />Creating a policy to ensure that technology is used appropriately in the classroom<br />Rules and Regulations for using technology correctly<br />Consequences for using technology incorrectly <br />
  10. 10. How students and teachers can adhere to copyright laws and guidelines in the access and use of information from various technologies related to math and science<br />Inform students of copyright rules before using any sort of technology<br />Have posters/signs posted around the room reminding the children of how to use technology appropriately<br />

  12. 12. How instructional software can be used for math and science.<br /> Tree Growth. In real life it would take years to watch a tree grow, but when using technology you can witness it in seconds.<br />http://edtech2.boisestate.edu/wagnerk/edtech580/instructionalsoftware.htm<br /> Math Media Educational Software, Arithmetic Series Number Sense: kindergarten students learns about numbers in a three level program on the computer that also includes optional worksheets <br />http://www.mathmedia.com/arsernew.html<br />Speed Math 3.0: elementary math games that help students learn arithmetic <br />http://www.caltrox.com/products/speedmath.htm<br />Star CD-Rom : elementary science games help students learn about topics like the planets, the human body, etc.<br />d. http://www.starcdrom.com/elementary-science-software.html<br />Elementary School History and Science learning System: students learn about plants, animals, etc.<br />http://www.childrenssoftwareonline.com/Default.aspx?m=item&pID=1961<br />
  13. 13. Teleresearch<br />http://www.pbs.org/teachers<br />The PBS website has activities for math and science both.<br />Activities for various age ranges.<br />http://school.discoveryeducation.com/index.html<br />Discovery Education for the classroom contains interesting facts and activities as well.<br />
  14. 14. How rubrics can be used for assessing students ?<br />Primary Grade Self-Evaluation Teamwork Rubric<br />Students grade themselves as how well they worked at a team member<br />Uses pictures of a sandwich (different sizes) to depict how well they did) <br />Scientific procedure rubric<br />For higher level science classes<br />Broken down into novice, apprentice, practitioner, and expert<br />Elementary science scoring rubric<br />For middle school science class<br />Focuses on the use of the scientific method<br />Broken down into distinguished, satisfactory, unsatisfactory, and no response<br />
  15. 15. Math Lesson PLan<br />http://www.teachnet-lab.org/miami/2003/rduarte2/lessonplan.htm<br />This is a great resource for students to use to better their math and technology skills. <br />Student s are able to develop their social skills (group interaction)<br />They learn how to create graphs online and how to incorporate formulas <br />
  16. 16. Summary<br />The technology field is ever-growing<br />All school subjects can incorporate technology<br />Math and Science is what we focused on specifically<br />Technology such as cameras, power points, over heads, videos, online sources, etc. can all help aid students in bettering their math and science skills. <br />Teachers should continue to emphasis on the importance of incorporating technology in the classroom.<br />
