Elementary School 2.0


Elementary School 2.0

Since elementary teachers have special circumstances to deal with concerning the use of technology, I thought we could meet here to talk and to share ideas for 2.0 integration.

Hello everyone!  I was a technology integrator for two different schools, but budget cuts left me out of a job both times.  Sigh!  I've started to post the technology lessons I created on my own time.  Feel free to check them out here

Good Afternoon!

My name is Matthew Callison. I am a former elementary teacher working on my PhD in the School of Education at Indiana University Bloomington.

I am writing to ask for your voluntary participation in an online survey I created as part of a research study I am conducting. The purpose of this study is to learn more about elementary teachers knowledge of, and experience with, student-centered teaching approaches. My hope is that the information gathered in this study can be used to understand how we can better support elementary teachers.

If you are an elementary teacher, please consider participating in this online survey. Your experiences as an elementary teacher are invaluable in helping researchers and teacher educators learn more about how to support teachers like you in your important work.

The survey should take about 15 minutes to complete and does not collect any personal information unless you decide to leave your contact information at the end of the survey.  You can learn more about the study and begin the survey (if you choose to participate) by visiting the link below:


If you know of other elementary teachers who may wish to participate in this study, please forward this information to them.

Thank you for your time.

The students in my school are having a very difficult time learning math facts. We are using flash cards and some computer games. How do you get students to learn math facts? Do you have any interesting ways to get them to learn them and have a bit of fun? It's sooo boring for them and they just aren't getting it.

Japanese Use Phonics as Training Wheels

In early school reading Japanese school children use a phonetic alphabet and switch to a pictographic by grade 4 when the students need to do more complex reading.

In a way, so do we.  We call it speed reading where the goal is undersanding without phonetic decoding.

A question that interests me.  Most of us can look at a word and say it.But I cannot look at a word and hear it.  Am I alone?

I have created a national challenge for elementary students.  The challenges are in math, telling time, counting coins, and pictures.  Please check out http://www.bubbabrain.com if you would like to check out the games.

Click on the word "Challenges" Select and challenge- Select your state- Select a game and hit play.  Students earn points for every correct answer.  Play the demo game on the homepage to understand how the software works.

Teachers, parents and students can now access objectives directly from this Web Site. Input key words, phrases, or test names in the search engine to find just the correct objectives for your students needs. Copy and paste any information you want, then modify the objectives (examples) to exactly describe the needs of your students. The kid section will give your students personal input to write their own objectives (with your help) and to play some interesting games as well.

This information is is designed to help you with the daunting task of writing proper IEP's  The data within this web site was written to correlate with the unique characteristics of various formal assessments. Since assessment is essential for the development of the IEP, specific questions were evaluated and idea statements written based upon those questions.

Students can pick their own IEP using Pictures!
