Students Learn Better With Star TrekStyle Touchscreen Desks  Popular Science  3 views

A UK study involving roughly 400 students, mostly aged 810 years, and a new generation of multitouch, multiuser, computerized desktop surfaces is showing that over the last three years the technology has appreciably boosted students’ math skills compared to peers learning the same material via the conventional paperandpencil method. How? Through collaboration, mostly, as well as by giving teachers better tools by which to micromanage individual students who need some extra instruction while allowing the rest of the class to continue moving forward.

the researchers have concluded that these new touchscreen desks boost both fluency and flexibilitythe critical thinking skills that allow students to solve complex problems not simply through knowing formulas and devices, but by being able to figure out what the real problem is and the most effective means of stripping it down and solving it.

This kind of stuff can be really hard to quantify,

How to Create Screencasts for Teaching and Learning Using Jing  25 views

Have you ever wanted to create short "how to" video for your students to use for homework, remembering facts, and solving math problems. How often have your students stated, "I could not complete the homework assignment, because I could not remember the steps and no one could help me." Well the answer is to create a screencast or video for posting on your class wiki or blog for students to view at home or anywhere else they have web access.
Stimulating Critical Thinking through a Technological Lens  15 views

Stimulating critical thinking using technology has the potential to create more in depth understanding of science and math content by students when engaged in learning activities which integrate inclass and online technology resources. Technology tools support stimulation of both inquirybased and critical thinking skills by engaging students in exploring, thinking, reading, writing, researching, inventing, problemsolving, and experiencing the world outside their classroom. This is accomplished through learning content through the lens of video to multimedia to the internet (Using Technology to Improve Student Achievement, NCREL, 2005).
