My Mathematics class will be doing so soon.
I acknowledge that often the mathematics classroom content meets the numeracy requirements for students but not the literacy needs. That’s why we’ll be using some software from learnosity.
Students call a landline number and are given a number of maths questions to answer. They supply their responses verbally and these are recorded onto a secure website. I can then run through and mark each of the student responses.
I like this idea because there aren’t many opportunities for students to interpret a verbalised question and provide a same response. I can nominate student answers, that I consider to be excellent, as sample responses so that other students.
My friend Steve Collis has been using this service with his French class.
