    1. 1. Tablets, Tablets, Tablets!!<br />How they can be used for Teaching Mathematics<br />Carol Carruthers & <br />SheonaDuthie<br />OAME<br />May 14, 2011<br />Slideshare link to this presentation is available at <br />
    2. 2. Presentation Outline<br />How we got here<br />Using the Notebook Journal<br />Why pen-based tablet technology?<br />Using learning objects, applets or Web Quests<br />Why a DyKnowworkspace –polling, share control, submitting panels, status, chat… ?<br />Is there a pen-based tablet in your future?<br />
    3. 3. Why Foundational Math?<br />How was it developed?<br />Who takes it?<br />Focus – increased use of technology for teaching and learning<br />Online textbook<br />Collaborative teaching and organization site<br />
    4. 4. Using Learning Objects, Applets, and Web Quests<br />Free Grain of Rice http://www.freerice.com/<br />Show me the Math! http://showthemath.org/<br />NLVM Balancing Equations http://bit.ly/jOlCyB<br />Math.com Algebra worksheet generator http://www.math.com/students/worksheet/algebra_sp.htm<br />
    5. 5. Teaching in the Notebook Journal <br />Word docs/ppt slides printed to Journal <br />Students download before class <br />
    6. 6. 2008 Higher Education HP Teaching for Technology Grant<br />Seneca selected from 44 higher education institutions (370 applicants world wide)<br />The $84 000 grant - 21 HP CompaqTablet PC’s, Microsoft® operating system, accessories<br />HP Teaching for Technology Grant<br />Seneca HP site<br />
    7. 7. Why Pen-Based Tablet Technology?<br />Difficult to type math – keyboard restrictions<br />Student familiarity with pencil and paper<br />Easily corrected<br />Diagramming ideas, decision trees<br />
    8. 8. DyKnowSoftware<br />“DyKnow Vision software is an interactive teaching tool used to maximize class time, foster collaborative learning and promote effective studying”<br />Funding by FASET and Academic Computing Services (ACS)<br />A 2010 Post Secondary DyKnow Collaborative Software Grant recipient<br />
    9. 9. What Level of Math do you Teach/Coach?<br />A) Elementary<br />B) High School<br />C) College<br />D) University<br />E) Coach/Admin<br />
    10. 10. Pen colour matters…<br />
    11. 11. Send us your ideas of how you could use a tablet pc in your classroom! (session>submit panel>ok)<br />
    12. 12. Submit panels-Student Work<br />
    13. 13. Students - the temporary teacher (share control)/modeling/replay<br />
    14. 14. Share Control – Student Work<br />
    15. 15. Technological Hurdles<br />Tablet PCs <br />Consistent wireless internet connection<br />Time constraints/benefits<br />Stylus vs. pen and virtual binder vs. paper<br />“…they (tablets) could be a very distracting because it (takes) your mind away off lectures…when lectures becomes boring I tend to go on websites which is the worst thing I can do …”<br />
    16. 16. Student Response<br />“…I actually did my work and it was done right and organized which helped for studying.”<br />“…I tend to pay attention more thus doing better in work and tests”<br />“…students can share answers anonymously, we can correct each other’s work.” <br />“I found that the shy students were more comfortable participating through the tablet and shared control in dyknow than standing up and speaking”.<br />
