### The Daring Librarian: Wikipedia is not wicked! - The Answer Sheet - The Washington Post- 70 views

• Teaching Wikipedia in 5 Easy Steps: *Use it as background information *Use it for technology terms *Use it for current pop cultural literacy *Use it for the Keywords *Use it for the REFERENCES at the bottom of the page!

Excellent perspective on "The 'W' Word" - use it wisely for what it is - high school and college kids shouldn't be citing any general knowledge encyclopedias for serious research - but that doesn't mean there aren't some excellent uses for it.

### SAMR and Bloom's Taxonomy: Assembling the Puzzle | Common Sense Education- 37 views

• Augmentation/Apply: Using a simple yet powerful tool for visualization like GeoGebra, students explore the concepts covered in the resources described in 1., and solve related standard problems. The scope and number of the problems is not governed by what is available in the “back of the book,”&nbsp;but rather driven by the evolution of student understanding, as measured by suitable formative assessment processes.
• Substitution/Remember: Students use ebooks and other Open Education Resources&nbsp;to acquire basic knowledge about statistical tools and procedures. 2. Substitution/Understand: At the same time, they begin a process of gathering information online describing applications of these statistical tools to an area of interest to them, using simple bookmark aggregation services (e.g., Diigo, Delicious) to collect and tag these resources, relating them to the knowledge gained in 1.

### TIMES Modules- 115 views

Nick Makin liked it
• These modules are prepared by AMSI as part of The Improving Mathematics Education in Schools (TIMES) Project. The modules are organised under the strand titles of the Australian Curriculum. Number and Algebra TIME and Geometry TIME and Probability The modules are written for teachers. Each module contains a discussion of a component of the mathematics curriculum from early primary up to the end of Year 10. There are exercises that teachers may wish to undertake – answers are given at the end of the module and often screencasts giving a solution are linked and indicated by an icon.

### The End of Theory: The Data Deluge Makes the Scientific Method Obsolete- 137 views

• sociology. Forget taxonomy, ontology, and psychology. Who knows why people do what they do? The point is they do it, and we can track and measure it with unprecedented fidelity. With enough data, the numbers speak for themselves.
• The big target here isn't advertising, though. It's science. The scientific method is built around testable hypotheses. These models, for the most part, are systems visualized in the minds of scientists. The models are then tested, and experiments confirm or falsify theoretical models of how the world works.
• But faced with massive data, this approach to science — hypothesize, model, test — is becoming obsolete.
• ...3 more annotations...
• Petabytes allow us to say: "Correlation is enough."
• There's no reason to cling to our old ways. It's time to ask: What can science learn from Google?
•
article discussing whether math models can replace other tools for understanding the world.
•
I dissagree. Maybe for someone who can cope with the massive scale Google works with but for the average student bah humbug. As far as the students I see the scientific method still needs to be taught as they need a lot of help learning how to gather reliable information from the web. As far as google is concerned the students simplistic, unevaluated searches are as valuable as someone who actually understands what they are looking for or maybe more valuable because more students are doing almost thoughtless searches. The real need is a good course, hopefully online, to teach students how to do a reasoned search. agoogleaday is a start.

### Math Interactives- 207 views

•
Nice IWB or Smart board activities for both theory and application of maths concepts.
•
Not getting into your site. Is it down?
•
I hoped if I just waited a day the site would be back up. I really am interested in good math interactives. I am hopeful the site will be restored or redirected.
•
I agree. The day I used it, it was fine but the day after it was down. It seems the whole 'learnalberta' site is down.
•
Ok. I offer this site instead: http://interactivemaths.net/
•
Ok, as of Thursday at 8:30 (Australian Time) this site is back up!
•
A great general maths site with lots of tutorials, activities and games which will help your students at school and at home. http://ictmagic.wikispaces.com/Maths

### Maths Charts- 104 views

•
