ideas for grade 4 math and technology

I'm a grade 4 teacher in BC, Canada, and I'm enrolled in a post-grad. program in integrating technology in teaching. I am looking for ideas to integrate technology into math lessons (starting with whole numbers to 10 000 and addition to 10 000,) in order to better engage students in the lessons and increase their understanding of these concepts. Any ideas for sites, free programs, or lessons themselves will be appreciated. Thank you!

Would anybody like some change?

As I often do, I speak with my wife about issues and theories related to

education. Though my wife is not a full time teacher, she does teach

as an adjunct professor at a local community college. Thus, I feel she

is knowledgeable and a worthy audience when discussing educationally

related topics.

Our most recent discussion revolved around how education needs to be

more effective and applicable to the ever changing needs of the student

population. There… Continue

Human nature - why sometimes we should fight to ignore it...

I will preface this post by saying I am only 15 pages into the book, The Death and Life of the Great American School System, by Diane Ravitch. Despite not being too far along in this book, I feel empowered to share my experiences thus far.

In my short 5 years in education I have learned many things, however for

this post I will concentrate on just one. There is one thing for

certain in education...and that is, there is… Continue

Bring on the learning revolution!

A fabulous resource to educators is available, and the best part about is free! Visit the website and watch videos about "ideas worth spreading." I chose this

particular video by Sir Ken Robinson because I feel Robinson makes a

wonderful point about education. When we talk about education we need

to forget about the evolution of the school system, but rather we… Continue

What should busy administrators be reading (or watching)? - Leadership Day 2010

This is my first time participating in Leadership Day 2010, and I must say I am really excited to be a part of this fantastic movement. As

educators, I would argue we all need to be inspirational and progressive

leaders in our own right; however in education's current form we have

building administrators and central office administrators as our

leaders. Their jobs are extremely difficult, and I can honestly say

most people… Continue

Gathering Storm to Impact Private Schools by Unconstitutional Agreement by the Department of Education

In order to safeguard taxpayers’ stimulus money sent to bolster the nation’s education industry, the Obama administration announced a number of new rules. At least one of which could adversely affect private schools, and may very well prove unconstitutional.

On the third and final round of negotiations, on May 26th, 2010, attorney negotiators from several states responded to the section that dealt with validating high school diplomas to curtail the proliferation of diploma mills.…

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…

Making Connections

Children learn best by making connections to something they already know. It's like connecting the wires of the brain from the platform that already exists to all of the new information that can fit the category in some way. The likelihood that the knowledge is going to become permanent is much more likely when connections are made.…

Launching an Edtech Company part 4: standard of content

As we think of the final touches to our simple learning management and communication tool ( we're drawn to the idea in education that these days there exists a basic standard of content on the web. A "standard of content" or SOC, used to be localized to schools and classrooms. It was based on the set of books that a teacher utilized during the school year.

So for example, in my social studies course back in 8th… Continue

Why dictation?

Dictation is one of the oldest language teaching activities. It is perhaps for this reason that it has been neglected recently by teachers, claiming that it is too teacher centered, uncommunicative, boring and old fashioned. But is dictation without any merit? Is it really old fashioned and uncommunicative?

Asian countries, leaders of technology-US, zero

I have never typed a blog before, but I have something that has been on my mind. I think those around me are tired of listening to me about this so here I am.

I have been taking a technology class for the past 4 months. I have become overwhelmed with the amount of technology out there that students and teachers don't have access to, whether it be from lack of know-how or from not having access to the technology.

We (the education community) have to change how we teach and what we… Continue

What are the Major Differences Between the Teacher-Directed and Student-Engaged Models of Teaching?

When mentoring our pre-service and in-service teachers we need to describe and model both research-based and clinical best practices. Accordingly, our mentees should know some of the major differences between student-engaged and teacher-directed models of teaching.

Some Major Differences Between the Student-Engaged and the Teacher-Directed Models of Teaching

War People Farming Kill Alpha Ranch Passive

Soldiers, politicians and the Holy Church all declare war to be an abomination and yet two global wars were fought in the last century and many conflicts since, some deliberately escalated. At first glance, it would appear that war is fought for two reasons defense or conquest. If this holds true than every military engagement can be quantified as either defensive or offensive. The problem with attempting to explain every military operation as either defensive or offensive comes with three… Continue
