Math training for your child during the summer

The school year is over for most of our families and summer is here. I don’t know what people’s plans are for the summer. My family is busy with plans for summer camps, schools, and a family vacation. As parents, we try to strike a balance between relaxation and fun, creative activities and being productive. We try to keep our children’s minds sharp, so we try to give them something academic over the summer, to try to ensure they don’t forget everything they learned over the past year. If you… Continue

Four apps students can use to make comics in the classroom

Comics are what I am into right now. The last several posts have been about comics, so today I spent some time playing with several different comic creators. I was surprised at how many there were out there that were free. As with any app, some of these may be blocked due to their social networking nature. However, I think that at least a few of these will be usable in most schools.…

Forgetting the game.

When the stuffed crust pizza first came out in my area, like everybody else we tried it. We found out quickly that the pizza makers had became so fascinated with the stuffed crust that they had forgotten the rest of the pizza. It was a lousy pizza.

That is what many makers of "educational games" do. They get fascinated with what they are trying to teach and forget about the "game." Games above all should be fun. On the other side teachers and parents ignore games that…

Utilizing MP3s in the College Classroom

Earlier this year, as I was teaching my Developmental Reading and Writing students, I noticed that during the break, they would immediately plug in their MP3 players or smart phones and begin listening to music files. They would also share music with one another. That started me thinking about how to utilize their interest in music to get them more interested in what I was teaching in the classroom. Many of my students struggle with note-taking and other traditional ways of learning new… Continue

Using VoiceThread Technology in the College Classroom

Recently, I decided to make a VoiceThread for use in my 20th C. American Literature class. I started exploring different teaching strategies for my students when I realized that they were not very excited to read and respond in the traditional way. A VoiceThread is a wonderful tool which enables you, the instructor, to upload your media file (like a slide presentation), add your voice to it, and then allows the students to add their comments as well. The entire VT then can be seen by either… Continue
