My students need 3 iPads, strong cases, screen protectors and an Apple TV to aid with our flipped "Singapore" mathematics curriculum.
When was the last time your homework consisted of watching a video and taking notes? Believe it or not, it is exactly what my second grade students are doing for math! It's a COOL way to learn!
I have a very diverse class.
Some speak another language other than English. They are inquisitive, fun and enjoy coming to school. They are always wanting to learn more and to have many opportunities to use technology with their learning. Being that our math curriculum is new, my team has decided to pre-record lessons and have children watch them before the object has been taught. The students are enjoying the lessons, but need more opportunities to re-watch the videos.
Our students will have online opportunities for the exposure of the Singapore Math Curriculum. Using iPads and Apple TV, students will have multiple opportunities to obtain Mathematical Proficiency. Students will be given multiple ways to explore and solve problems that will increase automaticity, and promote taking risks in a safe, confident environment. Students will integrate technology using Digital Citizenship skills that are necessary for the 21st century learner. We will practice these skills with district-learning buddies about the ongoing learning that supports the 2nd Grade curriculum.
We will also pair up with cross-cultural learning buddies to produce short video clips using iPad Apps for others in the district to use and to share over Edmodo. Using iPads, students will implement the tenets of Digital Citizenship and technology will be seamlessly integrated into all learning.
Math on the go!" provides a unique way in presenting curriculum to students all over the world! Students will no longer wonder what in the world the teacher is presenting as they preview lessons ahead of schedule. They will consume, critique and then produce their learning as they master their Singapore problem solving skills.
