Goal

  • This session will target how to infuse technology into the classroom and provide a snapshot of how to connect the curriculum to meaningful math and science learning experiences to foster engagement with early years students.


Action cards
Action Cards

  • Prepare a set of activity cards. Seat students in a circle. Place cards face down in the middle of the circle. Students take turns drawing a card and then leading the class in performing the activity on the card. Have students count aloud as the actions are

    performed.

Students can make their own cards!

It s about the learning
It’s About the Learning

  • It’s about the process of learning.

  • How can ICT support and enhance student learning?

  • No matter what we are learning, we follow a process, whether it is the curriculum or if we are learning to wink…

Transformation continuum
Transformation Continuum

“Philosophies of learning and teaching can be viewed as a continuum with extreme educational interpretations of behaviorism (for example, instruction) and cognitivism (for example, construction) at either end. Any one educator's philosophy resides somewhere on this line. The threshold between the two views marks a critical point of "transformation" for an educator.”Teaching with Technology. Hooper, Simon and Lloyd P. Rieber http://www.nowhereroad.com/twt/

Uncovering the curriculum
Uncovering the Curriculum

  • Just as the goal of science is to make sense of things, so is the goal of mathematics is to find and analyze mathematical patterns and make meaning of them.


Mathematical processes

Communication

Reasoning

Problem Solving

Visualization

Technology

Mental Mathematics and Estimation

Connections

Mathematical Processes

  • There are critical components that students must encounter in a mathematics program in order to achieve the goals of mathematics education and encourage lifelong learning in mathematics.


Science
Science

  • Scientific literacy is an evolving combination of the science-related attitudes, skills, and knowledge. Students need to develop inquiry, problem-solving, and decision-making abilities, to become lifelong learners, and to maintain a sense of wonder about the world around them.

    • Kindergarten to Grade 4 Science: Manitoba Curriculum Framework of Outcomes (1999)


Math

  • Students need to explore problem solving situations in order to develop personal strategies and become mathematically literate. Learners must realize that it is acceptable to solve problems in different ways and that solutions may vary.

Community Cards

  • In your groups, turn the cards so that you can see all of the images.

  • As a group, sort out the images with similar math or science.

  • Each group member must choose a card and talk about how math is shown through the image. Relate it to your life.

Engagement
Engagement

  • Use your everyday life to capture student’s interest. Math and science is found everywhere. It can begin with a story.

I am hungry!


Creating stories
Creating Stories

  • Engage students in curriculum by having them create their own stories.

  • How can you use technology to support story making?

  • Online collaboration

  • http://www.iearn.org.au/tbear/

  • The aim of the project was to team pairs of schools and have them exchange a 'Teddy Bear" or other soft toy. The bear then sent home a diary by email describing its adventures, the places it has been, as well as the things it had seen and done. The project aimed to enhance understanding and acceptance of diverse cultures.
