If you love music and have an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, you'll have fun exploring and experimenting with NodeBeat. As soon as I get my iPad, I plan to get this app! This would be a great asset for music educators, and at 99 cents, it is very affordable.…
This blog has two main themes: one is mathematics and the other is multimedia. The mathematics part will discuss ideas behind mathematical concepts from elementary to undergraduate topics. The multimedia part will discuss the use of different media such as text, graphics, sounds, video and animation in teaching mathematics. Mathematics and…
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
I will be moving to Arizona to teach at ASU in the American English and Culture Program. I am really happy about going back to live in a place where the sun shines everyday. As I sit here in a very dark and gloomy Kalamazoo, Mi.
I have been using computers in the classroom for a while and I am always looking for people to share new ideas with me. While living here in Michigan I discovered the Michigan Association for Computer Users in Learning. This organization…
Integrating computer games into existing CS courses may help attract students to the field, but there are guidelines to be considered.
Since computing is the foundation of modern society, a proficient computing work force is essential for maintaining the country's leadership and competitiveness in the global economy. The recent decline in enrollments across computer science (CS) departments and the decrease in student diversity pose significant challenges to the continuation of the… Continue

Abstract: This paper introduces the main functions of the screen recorder software. Combined with the characteristics of computer science courses and teaching methods commonly used, screen recorder software is playing a more and more important role. Practice has proved that screen recorder software improves the learning and teaching effectiveness. It is a helpful tool to facilitate teaching of professional computer science courses.
In the production of multi-media courseware presentation, we often need to capture the computer screen actions of operating the application, such as tracking the movement of the mouse and the keystrokes from the keyboard, and so on. That is to make a multimedia animation presentation document from your onscreen activity. And they can be used for software training and self-learning. The research shows that screen recording applied to teaching and training receives a good… Continue

I have updated the Maths text to include a section on completing the square; some rearranging has occurred. And I added some nice graphs; some of the graphs need to be replaced with "more professional" looking graphs.
Does anybody know of a program for Linux or Mac where I can put multiple graphs, label points, put custom labels on the x and y-axis, and export as *.png files?
Elementary Technology Teachers teach how-to.... and integrate technologies. We must spend time teaching how to use software and hardware so that students can apply tech skills in other areas. In our struggle of encouraging everyone to integrate SMARTBoards and other IWBs, I find that we do not have many of the tech How-To... lessons for the IWBs. SmartBoard and Promethean lessons for curriculum topics are springing up all over, but we still cannot ignore the basic technology knowledge needs.… Continue
