teach math digitally

  1. 1. mathcastproject.comTeach math Digitally(A resource for teachers)<br />Toby Beck<br />Mathcastproject.com<br />
  2. 2. Teach your class using Mathcasts<br />Use mathcast.com to help you teach curriculum to your class. Rather than teach the content lesson yourself, you will be free to roam the classroom and help individual students as they need it, giving one on one help to your students the moment they need help.<br />
  3. 3. Benefits to Student LearningorWhat’s the point?<br />Allows for differentiated learning as students go at their own pace<br />Students go at their own pace as they pause and rewind the instructional mathcast as needed<br />
  4. 4. Benefits to Student LearningorWhat’s the point?<br />Web-based portfolio of learning over the year<br />Powerful learning tool that students can access any time, anywhere<br />Students may take with them to next year as a review device<br />
  5. 5. Benefits to Student LearningorWhat’s the point?<br />Accesses multiple intelligences and requires greater brain activity to create a MathCast<br />“The net savvy group showed almost twice as much activity while online compared with reading a book....the web surfing task activated the same areas of the brain as reading, but in addition, the brain was involved in decision making, complex reasoning and vision detection.”<br />From “I Live in the Future and Here’s How It Works”<br />By Nick Bilton<br />
  6. 6. Benefits to Student LearningorWhat’s the point?<br />Digital literacy<br />Preparing learners for the global, knowledge based, digital world<br />
  7. 7. Student Responses<br />The mathcasts also tested us on how much we understood the subject, not just the formula. This is better in my opinion as it prepares us more.<br />Digital learning allowed me to go at my own pace and not have to worry about people in the class that were faster than me and would make the class move on without me knowing because I was still working. <br />Personally, I think I learn way better digitally on my own rather than in class with everyone else. I can be in my own space and go at my own pace.<br />
