Technology Integration

  1. 1. Technology Integration: Review of Estimation Heather Harris IP&T 287
  2. 2. Lesson Objectives <ul><li>Review of Estimation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Objective 1: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The students will be able to estimate numbers with addition and subtraction </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Objective 2: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The students will be able to estimate to different place values. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Using Technology in the Classroom: Video Clips <ul><li>In order to help the students remember how to estimate and to what place value to estimate to, I used a power point with a Who Wants to be a Millionaire template that allowed the students to play a review game. This allowed the students the opportunity to practice the math problems on their own at their desk while working as a group to recall the information they had once learned. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Picture One: Before the Power Point <ul><li>Before the students were allowed to play the game we review problems varying in difficulty on the over head as a class. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This was a great review for the students because it allowed all the students to get involved and did not embarrass the students that did not remember or understand the different concepts that were involved with estimating. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Picture Two: Introduction to the Game <ul><li>The game was a good way to get the students involved and they all wanted to participate. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We worked as a class and they did not know that their was any reward other then going home and telling their family friends that they were able to win who wants to be a millionaire. </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Picture Three: Working Individually and As a Group <ul><li>The Students were working together as a group as they went through the game but they were required to work individually on their own white boards at their desk before we would move on. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Having the students work on their own and walking before working as a group allowed me to walk around the room and see who understood and who needed more help. </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Picture Four: Fixing Mistakes <ul><li>When the students would get a problem wrong then we would work together as a class to fix the problem. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The students really liked fixing any mistakes because it allowed them to see where they went wrong and the importance of checking their work. </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. What Went Well: <ul><li>The students were very excited to participate in the game and allowed them to pay more attention. </li></ul><ul><li>They were able to see how this game could relate to the test they would have to take later in the year. </li></ul><ul><li>The game was different and was a new way to go over math topics. They were more engaged and enthusiastic about learning math because of it. </li></ul>
  9. 9. What Did Not Go Well: <ul><li>Even though the students were figuring out the answer on their own, only one person was allowed to answer at a time, so some students were not happy when they did not get to answer. </li></ul><ul><li>Some of the students did not always get the answer right and because we were working as a group, we could not always go over each question to see what went wrong. </li></ul>
  10. 10. What I Would Change: <ul><li>Because we were working as a big group, it was hard to go over every question that one or two of the students did not understand. So, I would change the big group lesson to a smaller review that the students would be allowed to do on their own on the computers. </li></ul><ul><li>Next time, I will have the students work individually and keep track of their scores on their own paper so that they will be able to see which question they do not understand so that they will be able to ask me questions. </li></ul>
  11. 11. 4 Principles of Effective Technology Integration <ul><li>Student Use of Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Essentials of Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Focus on the Learning Task </li></ul><ul><li>Added Value </li></ul>
  12. 12. Student Use of Technology <ul><li>Although my students did not actually physically handle the technology, they were able to watch the power point and template and use it to better their own learning. The were involved in the learning process and were able to review all the tasks that were given them. They also saw the correct way to perform the math tasks by viewing the technology. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Essentials of Technology <ul><li>The internet allowed us to use the template for the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire game. Without the internet then we would not have been able to use this template which helped encourage the students to participate in the activity. </li></ul><ul><li>Without a computer then the entire activity to review the estimation would not have been possible. I would have had to find another way to teach the lesson which would not have been as interesting or engaging. </li></ul><ul><li>The use of the projector allowed the image on the compute to be visible to the whole class. This allowed all the students to see the problem and saved time it would have taken to write the problems on the board. Without the projector then the students would not be able to see the problem and would have been more easily distracted. </li></ul><ul><li>The use of the template in the lesson was very important because it allowed them to have fun while reviewing important topics and taught them the correct attitude towards math. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Focus is on the Learning Task <ul><li>The focus of my lesson was to teach the students how to estimate numbers through addition and subtraction. Also, it was to help the students learn about estimating to different place values. </li></ul><ul><li>Before the lesson started I prepared the template so that the questions were already in place and I would not have to spend class time working on them. Also, I had the computer and projector ready so that there was not dead time while the students waited for me to set everything up. </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore the transitions were smooth and their was no dead time. This enabled the focus to be on the students at all times and allowed them to learn more effectively. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Added Value <ul><li>This template and power point helped to get the students attention so that they would learn the math concepts more effectively. They were able to develop a deeper understanding of estimation and practice many problems. </li></ul><ul><li>The game made the lesson more fun which allowed for a more interactive and different math lesson. It was a nice change of pace from the normal math lessons the do. </li></ul><ul><li>The use of this game allowed the students to make connections to other important behavioral skills such as working together, sharing, and patience. </li></ul>
