What are some of the fails with technology that you’ve had that you everyone else could learn from?

Whether technology is used or not, if student learning does not occur then it is a fail.


What do we need to unlearn regarding our expectations of technology and learning. Is this relevant to the discussion?

Utilising Web 2.0

Blabberize – easy voice over animation for any subject or course

Xtranormal – fun cartoon animation to introduce a lesson or new topic

Museum box – great way for students to store their topic summaries through video, text, photos and sound

These animations aren’t life changing or specifically mathematical. They could be used in almost any course or subject

NAPLAN – developing literacy within Maths – Tagxedo

Clear index of some helpful apps for Maths

You must past these links onto other Maths teachers

TED talk from Dan Meyer – project based learning/ understanding maths concepts and developing problem solving skills. This is the most challenging talk I’ve heard in a long time because Maths teachers are normally chalk and talk.

Great way of helping students estimate on a global scale.
