    3. 3. Goals of this Presentation <ul><li>This presentation will: </li></ul><ul><li>Provide an overview of Web 2.0. </li></ul><ul><li>Discuss why to use these tools in your classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>Explore ideas about how to use these tools in the teaching of mathematics. </li></ul><ul><li>Show some of the possibilities for the use of Web 2.0 tools. </li></ul>
    4. 4. Why am I here? <ul><li>Technology is accelerating while mathematics pedagogy has not kept up. </li></ul><ul><li>LHS Power Standards </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Writing/Reading across curriculum </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Information Literacy </li></ul></ul><ul><li>LHS/LPS Curriculum Change </li></ul><ul><ul><li>LPS adopts standards based curriculum </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>LHS adopts IMP curriculum </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Student centered, problem based, integrated </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Lack of technology imbedded in IMP curriculum other than graphing calculators . </li></ul><ul><li>Result: Masters Thesis on integrating technology into the IMP program. </li></ul>
    5. 5. Web 2.0 Overview <ul><li>Web 2.0 is a term often applied to an ongoing transition of the Web from a collection of websites to a full-fledged computing platform serving web applications to end users. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_2.0 </li></ul><ul><li>Web 2.0 is often referred to as the “Read/Write Web” </li></ul><ul><li>Examples include – weblogs, wikis, podcasts, online documents, etc. </li></ul>
    6. 6. Why use these tools in the Mathematics Classroom? <ul><li>Video - “A Vision of K-12 Students Today” </li></ul><ul><li>NCTM Principals and Standards </li></ul><ul><li>ISTE National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) </li></ul><ul><li>Nearly every school has computers with internet capabilities. </li></ul><ul><li>Harnessing those capabilities is both logical and cost effective. </li></ul><ul><li>You do not need to know how to program to use these tools!! </li></ul>
    7. 7. NCTM Principles and Standards <ul><li>A coherent curriculum effectively organizes and integrates important mathematical ideas so that students see how the ideas build on, or connect with, other ideas, thus enabling them to develop new understandings and skills. </li></ul><ul><li>The council outlines principles and standards which are meant to guide mathematics teaching. </li></ul><ul><li>Principles: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Equity </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Curriculum </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Teaching </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Learning </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Assessment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Technology </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Process Standards: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Problem Solving </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reasoning and Proof </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Communication </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Connections </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Representation </li></ul></ul>
    8. 8. ISTE - National Educational Technology Standards (NETS•S) <ul><li>1. Creativity and Innovation </li></ul><ul><li>Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and develop innovative products and processes using technology. </li></ul><ul><li>2.

Research and Information Fluency </li></ul><ul><li>Students apply digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information. </li></ul>
    9. 9. ISTE - National Educational Technology Standards (NETS•S) Cont. <ul><li>4. Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making </li></ul><ul><li>Students use critical thinking skills to plan and conduct research, manage projects, solve problems, and make informed decisions using appropriate digital tools and resources. </li></ul><ul><li>5. Digital Citizenship </li></ul><ul><li>Students understand human, cultural, and societal issues related to technology and practice legal and ethical behavior. </li></ul><ul><li>6.

Other Research <ul><li>Digital Natives vs. Digital Immigrants (Prensky) </li></ul><ul><li>PEW Internet and American Life Project (2005) ( http://www.pewinternet.org/ ) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>87% of U.S. teens aged 12-17 use the internet, up from 73% in 2000. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>By contrast, 66% of adults use the internet, up from 56% in 2000. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>51% of teenage internet users say they go online on a daily basis, up from 42% in 2000. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>21 st Century Skills (2006) ( www.21stcenturyskills.org ) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Coalition of Business, Education, and Government Leaders </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Literacy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Students must be able to use technology to learn content and skills — so that they know how to learn, think critically, solve problems, use information, communicate, innovate and collaborate. </li></ul></ul></ul>
    11. 11. Some Words of Caution <ul><li>Imperative that technology is not an “add on”. </li></ul><ul><li>Begin slowly, one class, one kind of technology. </li></ul><ul><li>Work with a colleague. </li></ul><ul><li>Find experts in your building or district. </li></ul><ul><li>Be careful about student’s exposure on the Web. </li></ul><ul><li>Remind students that all school rules apply to class blogs and wikis and other technologies. </li></ul><ul><li>Have students create separate accounts if they want to use these tools outside of class. </li></ul><ul><li>When in doubt ask permission of administration and parents. </li></ul><ul><li>Make a technology contract for you and your students to follow. </li></ul>
