  • Blogs are a great way to see the benefits of technology. A Blog is a place where teachers can share ideas, activities, and successful lessons with each other. Much like the intention of Andrea Kerr’s blog, blogs have the intention of provided fun engaging lessons for teachers to use that will provide students with the most effective learning experience and will allow them to obtain the most amount of knowledge.Background Source: source:
  • Pinterest is a different type of blog. The best way to describe it is to say that Pinterest is a virtual bulletin board. On Pinterest you can type anything want into the search bar and it provides “pins” (aka links, pictures, directions) of whatever you searched, and it also provided “boards” (pages created by users on Pinterest which contain “pins” that they found successful or want to try. Pinterest is a successful blog because it not only provides creative and engaging activities for teachers to use in their classroom, but it is also easy enough for students to use to help them gather project ideas.

  • This video is from the Khan Academy and is used as an informational tool and a way to use technology as a facilitator in a lesson. This video starts by activating prior knowledge by doing a quick review of addition. Furthermore, in this video there are different colors used throughout the lesson to differentiate the steps needed to successfully multiply. This can be useful because this step by step video will either reinforce what students have learned and mastered or will provide new insight and clarification for students that might have been confused.Background Source: Source:
  • Even though informational videos are beneficial, there are also videos that make songs to go along with the multiplication tables. Youtube is a great source for entertaining videos that can also be educational. Another great aspect of Youtube is that depending on the video you select, Youtube will show you other videos that are related to the video you originally selected. These videos can be a fun way for students to learn their multiplication facts without them realizing they are learning!Background Source: Source:

  • This chart / diagram was created on Kidspiration. This graphic organizer is set up such that it walks a student step by step through a multiplication problem. For instance in the first box students are to draw the picture. This will help student visualize exactly what they are going to be counting. After the picture is drawn student will go to the next box where they create the equation. This comes after drawing the picture because students are to accurately write a multiplication problem, and the picture helps the students realize what they should be multiplying. The last box is where students write the answer, this square serves as the assessment. This is because if a student’s answer is right this demonstrates that they understand how to multiply.

    1. 1. Multiplication Third Grade Unit Stephanie Stasiak
    2. 2. Overview In this presentation I will show how various forms of technology, such as blogs, interactive websites, and video clips, are beneficial and facilitate third grade students’ learning of Multiplication.
    3. 3. Rationale for the Integration of Technology Math is often a subject that is disliked by students. It is common for students to be discouraged by math and have trouble processing the material being presented. However, by using technology in the classroom we can eliminate this problem. With the integration of technology, students will constantly be engaged by using and referring to interactive websites and activities. With the help of technology, materials can be presented in various forms, thus relating to different types of learning styles. Also with technology, students will have access to additional informational resources and aids which will make processing math easier. Lastly, by using technology in the classroom students will not only receive a better understanding of math topics such as Multiplication, but they will also gain 21st Century skills such as using the computer, internet, and SMART Board. This presentation will show and provide examples of how teachers can integrate blogs, apps, interactive websites, songs, videos and SMART Board activities into their everyday lessons. Listen to my rationale: View...
