    "Four challenges face students as they use Internet technologies to search for, navigate, critically evaluate, and synthesize information. Here ... [Coiro] pose[s] each challenge as a question and suggest a corresponding activity that models effective strategies to help students meet that challenge" (A New Kind of Literacy, ¶3).

How to Integrate Wolfram Alpha into Science and Math Classes - 10 views

  •  
    What is Wolfram Alpha? It is a supercomputing brain. It provides calculates and provides comprehensive answers to most any science or math question. Unlike other search sources, you and your students can ask questions in plain language or various forms of abbreviated notation.

    Contrary to popular belief, Wolfram Alpha is not a search engine. Unlike popular search engines, which simply retrieve documents based on keyword searches, Wolfram computes answers based on known models of human knowledge. It provides answers which are complete with data and algorithms, representing real-world knowledge.

To Blog or Not To Blog in Science or Math Class - 7 views

  •  
    The primary purpose of blog is to facilitate interaction between a teacher and his or her students. This is possible because a blog is a dynamic tool which can be easily updated or transformed as necessary to meet the needs of a science or math class.

    The integration of blog technology in a class requires an investment of time. Because of this commitment, additional evidence is needed to support the integration this technology in a science or math class curriculum.

Top 10 Online Tools for Teaching Science and Math - 17 views

  •  
    Why use Web 2.0 tools in science and math classes? The primary reason is they facilitate access to input and interaction with content through reading, writing, listening, and speaking.

    These tools offer enormous advantages for science and math teachers, in terms of helping their students learn using Web 2.0 tools. For example:

    * Most of these tools can be edited from any computer connected to the Internet. Teachers can add, edit and delete information even during class time.

    * Students learn how to use these tools for academic purposes and, at the same time, can transfer their use to their personal lives and future professional careers.

    * RSS feeds allow students to access all the desired research information on one page.

    * Students learn to be autonomous in their learning process.

Why Interactive White Boards are Used Ineffectively in Classrooms - 11 views

  •  
    An interactive White Board (IWB) or SMART Board has the potential to deliver content better than traditional methods of teaching. Why? Because it provides multi-media functional interaction across audio, video, and computer media. It is also ideal for visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners.

    These qualities of an IWB also promote the dynamic delivery of content (if used to its full potential) in an engaging manner, which allows students to interact with science or math content their self. Examples include:

    * data manipulation

    * responding to data

    * even creating data

    So with all these attributes -

    "How are interactive white boards unsuccessfully used in science and math classrooms?" For the most part - not effectively!
