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?
I also have been researching flipping my classroom and I'm super excited to dip my foot into it after our PSSA's are complete. I would like to preview the first math chapter my Pre-Algebra students will see next year in Algebra. There are going to be tons of questions and lots of adjustments once the flipping begins but I think trying this method out NOW will help me to decide if I want to go all out…Continue

We try utilizing some of these podcasts in my 2nd grade classroom. Some of them are used as a whole class, and then others are used on individual student laptops or iPods.

Everyone in industry, research, and scientific research seems to realize that we have a severe shortage of quality math students coming up through college. And the kids themselves in K-12, specifically in High School tend to realize that math is not their strong suit, but why I ask? It appears to me that the kids are not applying themselves correctly to learn mathematics, and there are not enough solid math teachers teaching math the most efficient way.
In a lot of ways, Georgia, and Atlanta Public Schools in particular are always early to the party. This school system is always willing to adopt new reforms ahead of many other school systems, particularly those in metro Atlanta. One of the most significant reforms that APS has adopted over recent years is the push for special needs students to be included in the regular education program whenever possible. SEBD and EBD students in particular have benefit from this push. This is…Continue

We are well into the new school year by now. In my family, we have settled into a routine of driving to schools and then driving to sports after school. With three kids in three different schools and three different schedules, driving has been really hectic (no school bus system where we live). However, we believe it is important for our kids to have a balanced set of activities, that combines academics with sports and other things.

Happy summer everyone! Public schools are out and the summer has really kicked in. Some of you may be on vacation, and some may be involved with summer camps and summer schools. It never hurts to combine fun and relaxation with creative and productive learning. If you can find just 10 minutes a day for your kids to do some math, it would help them remember the things they have learned, and would make the next school year easier. Also, if your kids are a bit behind on any math…Continue
