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.

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!
