Topic
Topic

  • Technology can be used to find effective ways to modify and accommodate lessons for all students.


Rationale
Rationale

  • Technology keeps students interested in the lessons.

  • Technology provides an alternative way of learning through the visual, auditory, and tactile/kinesthetic modalities.

  • Technology provides a way to differentiate instruction.


Thesis
Thesis

  • We can use technology to modify lesson plans to ensure academic success.


Technology in math
Technology in Math

  • Calculators

  • Smart Boards

  • Computer Programs


Technology in math1
Technology in Math

  • Calculators

    • Used to check work

    • Used to help compute problems once the students understand and can correctly do problems without the calculator

    • Makes doing math faster


Technology in math2
Technology in Math

  • Smart Boards

    • Makes math interesting to students

    • Makes math interactive and hands on

    • Makes it easy to show students how problems can relate to real life context


Technology in math3
Technology in Math

  • Computers

    • Make learning math interesting

    • Give students another way to learn math if they don’t understand ways that the teacher explains

    • Good for visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners

    • A way to differentiate instruction


Technology in math4
Technology in Math

  • Computer Programs

    • Number Munchers

    • Free internet sites

      • Math Playground

    • Geometers Sketch



  • Vocabulary

    • Online matching games (picture use great for ELL)

    • http://www.vocabulary.co.il/games2/matchgame/match.php

  • Parts of speech – example: adjectives

  • http://www.quia.com/cm/16189.html?AP_rand=668124221

  • Unit word search

  • http://www.vocabulary.co.il/games2/wsearch/wsearch.php



  • Chapter books – class reading time when using interactive content in computer games

    • Use of video/movie after finishing the book in class

    • Use of computers in the computer lab to type up book reviews

    • Use of discussion boards – post questions and have students respond individually to build off of each others ideas


  • Computer lab when using interactive content in computer games

    • Use of headphones to increase volume for students who may have trouble hearing during audio clips

    • Enlarging text on computer screens during typing activities


  • Use of when using interactive content in computer gamesDreamweaver

    • Teachers can use this to create their own specialized programs and websites for their students to use

    • These websites can be altered to suit the content of the unit the class is in


Special education
Special Education when using interactive content in computer games

  • The following activities will take place in a resource room and incorporate accommodations for replacement math and replacement language arts instruction.


Replacement math
Replacement Math when using interactive content in computer games

  • Use of smart boards and overheads

    • Allows for interactive lessons

    • Enlargement of information presented (great for those with vision impairments.)

  • Calculators

  • Computers

    • Interactive math games

    • Presentations can be made on the computer

  • FM Hookup

    • Used to amplify voice for those with hearing impairments

    • Connects directly to the student’s hearing aide


Replacement language arts
Replacement Language Arts when using interactive content in computer games

  • Use of Video

    • Show a video clip to the class

    • Watching a movie that coincides with a book

    • Having the students make their own videos

  • Use of Audio

    • Read along tapes

  • Smart Boards and overheads

    • Interactive class discussions

  • Computers

    • Edmark Reading program

    • Activities and games

  • FM Hookup


Assessing a student through technology
Assessing a Student Through Technology when using interactive content in computer games

  • Can be used for both formal and informal assessments

  • Interactive computer programs

    • Edmark Reading program

      • Sight word recognition and interactive activities

      • Gives teacher progress reports

    • Math games done on the computer

    • Online activities (can be done in the computer lab)


Assessments continued
Assessments Continued when using interactive content in computer games

  • Demonstrating understanding through technology

    • Involvement in class discussions

      • Using the smart board

      • Discussion of video clips

      • Answering questions in class discussion

      • Demonstrating understanding with technology

  • Online Quizzes

  • Online discussion boards


Bloom s taxonomy
Bloom’s Taxonomy when using interactive content in computer games


Using technology for accommodations during standardized testing
Using Technology for Accommodations During Standardized Testing

  • Some IEP’s state that students need accommodations when taking a standardized test.

  • These accommodations will sometimes require technology

    • FM connection for those with hearing impairments.

    • Having text enlarged for those with vision impairments.

    • Technology use for those with physical impairments.

      • Low fine motor skills


Summary
Summary Testing

  • Bloom’s Taxonomy

  • Why technology works

  • Math accommodations

  • Language Arts accommodations

  • Special Education

Rationale Testing

  • Technology keeps students interested in the lessons.

  • Provides an alternative way of learning through the visual, auditory, and tactile/kinesthetic modalities.

  • Provides a way to differentiate instruction.
