Math Podcast's for 6th Graders?

I have recently created a podcast in a graduate class. It was fun to create and I find that it can be very informative if done correctly.  However, it was very time consuming. So until I build up a collection of my own podcasts, I am wondering if anyone knows of any good podcasts that are already created form implementation? Also, what ways have you found as the best way to implement a podcast effectively?

Of batting averages, grading, and MVP seasons...

This post was originally posted on Assessment FOR Learning.

While assessment and grading are two distinct topics, they often intertwine.  Occasionally something comes along to remind us that poor grading practices can end up negating effective assessment practices.  That's why Allen Iverson is on this site - to remind us that we need to give…

Recommended Books for Teachers

This blog was originally posted on The Freshman Transition Network.

Here are some great books to consider reading and/or sharing with your students.

Over the years I have been amazed by the number of educators who don't read books related to our field. We recognize the importance of our students reading but then overlook how important it is for us. Perhaps part of the reason is that many books on…

Collaboration Ideas

I am looking for a class to have a book club with. We would have weekly readings. Each student would weekly write a comment and respond to a comment.

There are few programs that say 'competence' more than Adobe Photoshop. If a student can accomplish this photo editor, he becomes the go-to guy for technology. He develops a confidence that carries over into so many other skills s/he'll want to use with computers. On my blog, Ask a Tech Teacher, I've itemized some of the favorites among my students, the easiest for a fifth grader to use when they're putting themselves into that… Continue

New Literacies

I am looking for some advise on how to engage my grade one students in some form of new (non traditional) form of literacy. I am thinking about podcasting and blogging, but I have never tried either before. Any suggestions as to how I can keep it simple for both myself and my 7 year old students?

Teaching students how to comment...

About 1.5 weeks ago I rolled out my class blog (Mr. Lane's Computer Applications/Web 2.0 Blog) as an interactive tool with my 8th grade Web 2.0 technology class (the first few weeks it served, more or less, as a Web 1.0 tool). After working through the layout of the blog, we read together a post, and then I asked them to submit a comment. Before they commented I spent some time discussing the importance of making sure the comment was free of spelling… Continue
