  • Integ Mm Into The Classroom

    1. 1. Integrating Multi Media into the Mathematics Classroom Jennifer Wathall [email_address]
    2. 2. Objective Look at alternative ways of presenting mathematics to students which involve multi media to enhance learning for the digital native or e generation.
    3. 3. Why? How? What? Who?
    4. 5. Why?
    5. 7. Digital Native Generation M E Generation Digital Immigrant Early Adopters?
    6. 8. Why Multi Media? Why Digital Education? “ Technology has always been an important factor for education, but the rapid development of Internet and digital technology over the past decade is changing more than just the equipment used in the classroom: kids' learning styles and school behavior are constantly being shaped by the growing presence of the Internet”. Marc Prenksy
    7. 9. What? Who?
    8. 10. What is multi media? In general, multimedia includes a combination of different content forms such as text, audio, still images, animation, video, and interactivity. Multimedia can recorded and played, displayed or accessed by computerized and electronic devices and can also be part of a live performance. Wikipedia
    9. 11. Who are we teaching? A. The students who are truly self-motivated. B. The students who go through the motions. C. The students who “tune us out.” The motto of this group? “ Engage me or Enrage me”
    10. 12. Rules of Academic Engagement <ul><li>Create a rewarding learning environment – make learning a social event </li></ul><ul><li>2. Put your students in charge of their learning </li></ul><ul><li>3. Specify your expectations </li></ul><ul><li>4. Provide early, rapid and continuous feedback </li></ul><ul><li>Professor William Pelz </li></ul><ul><li>State University of New York </li></ul>
    11. 13. The Continuum of Engagement /--------------------------------------------------/ “ A” “B” “C” A. Self-motivated students B. Students who ‘play school’ C. Students who tune us out Thanks - and credit - to Marc Prensky, Educause Review, Sept/Oct. 2005, Volume 40, Number 5
    12. 14. What is Cognitive Theory in Multi Media Learning? Professor Richard Mayer has shown learners are better able to transfer their learning given multimodal instruction Wikipedia
    13. 15. What is multi media learning and how can it foster learning? 1. Modality principle: +
    14. 17. Students learn better from animation and narration than from animation, narration, and on-screen text“ (Mayer, 2001,p.184) 2.The Redundancy Principle Limited Capacity Assumption
    15. 18. Where do your eyes focus during this? To Show Geometrically That (a + b) 2 = a 2 + 2ab + b 2 (a + b) 2 = a 2 + 2ab + b 2 We are going to show geometrically that (a+b) 2 = a 2 +2ab + b 2 The area of the first piece is a 2 Split your square into four pieces The area of the third piece is also ab The last piece is b 2 Let’s start off with a square with side a +b The area of the second piece is ab a + b a + b a 2 ab ab b 2
    16. 19. Use few words to summarise than many extraneous words and pictures. 3. Active Processing Assumption Coherent summary
    17. 20. Multi Media Richard Mayer defines multimedia as any environment where material is presented in more than one format + + + +
    18. 22. How?
    19. 23. Today’s Multi Media Power point Incorporating animation, sound and interactivity Video- recording, editing and streaming, student centred learning for engagement
    20. 24. A A A A A A A A A A A dvantages PowerPoint <ul><li>Easily accessed by students </li></ul><ul><li>Students can have their work published </li></ul><ul><li>Published work. </li></ul><ul><li>Compatible with PC and Mac </li></ul><ul><li>Use in the corporate world </li></ul>
    21. 25. The Power of PowerPoint <ul><li>Functions and uses </li></ul><ul><li>Pen, drawing, saving annotations </li></ul><ul><li>Custom animation- flash once/ disappear, motion paths and wiping </li></ul><ul><li>Sound effects </li></ul>
    22. 26. 1. Basic Functions Pen, writing, view slide show, saving annotations- saving students’ solutions .
    23. 27. 2. Custom Animation <ul><ul><li>Custom animation- Flash Once / Disappear </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>You can make object appear to be moving using this custom animation option </li></ul></ul>
    24. 28. Flash Once You can make any object to appear to be moving using this custom animation option Here you entrance flash once. Subsequent moons must start after previous.
    25. 29. The area of a parallelogram = the area of a rectangle on the same base. Area = base x height Area = base x height base height base height  Area of a Parallelogram
    26. 30. Motion Paths You can set any object on a motion path! Such as a person walking across the Bridges of Konigsburg
    27. 31. O H E X G N A
    28. 32. Wiping chocolate milk 1) Draw cylinder container- unfill object 2) Draw second cylinder keep the filled colour 3) Select second cylinder and choose custom animation entrance-wipe
    29. 33. 3. Sound
    30. 34. Video Streaming Student led projects
    31. 35. The Pi Project
    32. 36. The Quotient Rule Song “ The Quotient rule is driving me crazy The rule is simple Just remember, remember Low dee hi, hi dee low and draw the line to square below You can easily solve this”
    33. 37. The Quotient Rule Song
    34. 38. Sine Rule Song (Imagine) “ Imagine there’s no sine rule Its easy if you try No a over Sin A No b over Sin B No c over Sin C This is the Sine Rule Yooo hoo Find a missing angle Or a missing side Of a triangle With the Sine Rule”
    35. 39. The Sine Rule Song
    36. 40. Students Teaching? We remember: 10% of what we read 20% of what we hear 30% of what we see 50% of what we see and hear 70% of what we discuss 80% of what we experience personally 90% of what we teach others
    37. 42. Chi Squared
    38. 43. SOHCAHTOA
    39. 44. How do I integrate multi media in my classroom? 3
    40. 45. Start your own Youtube account Tape your learning activity Edit your footage The Practical
    41. 46. Embedding Video onto your Learning Platform
    42. 47. Downloading and capturing video in your PowerPoint
    43. 49. I hope you feel inspired to join me on the journey from being a digital immigrant and using minimal multi media in the classroom to adopting and utilising the resources available to fully integrate multi media into the mathematics classroom to enhance the learning for the digital natives. We have responsibility to engage not enrage our Digital Natives , Generation M our E generation … Thank you
