1. Hands-on Activities & Concrete Manipulatives

2. Technology for Science & Math

3. ?Which are More Effective, Hands-on Manipulatives or Technology Equipment and Applications??

4. Do modern technologies make low-tech, hands-on activities and concrete manipulatives outdated?

5. Engaged Students & More Learning!

6. Benefits to Incorporating Both Reach more students by addressing different learning styles & multiple modalities Deepen students? understanding and mastery of concepts and skills

7. When, Where, Why, and How? We don?t want to advocate incorporating technology into every activity or technology for the sake of technology. So?what questions should we be asking ourselves when making decisions about EFFECTIVE integration of technology into hands-on science and math?We don?t want to advocate incorporating technology into every activity or technology for the sake of technology. So?what questions should we be asking ourselves when making decisions about EFFECTIVE integration of technology into hands-on science and math?

8. Does this equipment, application, digital media, resource, or activity? Facilitate effective content delivery or increase the effectiveness of the lesson?

9. Enhance students? ability to demonstrate or apply, practice, create, evaluate or analyze, communicate or present? Does the technology? Implementing both should not mean double the preparation or double the instructional timeImplementing both should not mean double the preparation or double the instructional time

10. Integrating various technologies into hands-on concrete activities should not mean double (or triple) the preparation or double the class time.

11. Technology can help students Organize their thinking (brainstorming, collaborative planning, concept mapping) Graphically represent, manipulate and revise ideas, procedures, flow charts Illustrate and manipulate concepts and processes, including cycles, cause and effect.

12. Technology can help students Digitally capture observations made during hands-on activities Photograph or video Record and organize individual, group and whole class results Display, manipulate, analyze and evaluate data

13. Technology can help students: Communicate and collaborate remotely with other students and with experts Wikis Collaborative web projects Ask an expert Chat and Video conferencing

14. Technology can help students: Present what they know and can do PowerPoint or other presentation software Digital Stories- free or low cost Video and podcasts Flash or other animation

15. So, how can you do this in your district, school, classroom?

16. Space Unit Hands-on with concrete manipulatives: Models of solar system Kinesthetic simulations (ex: flashlight, globe, simulating rotation and revolution)

17. Online Interactive Star Charts - Skyview Caf? http://www.skyviewcafe.com/skyview.php?version=4

18. Space Unit- Technology Integration Starry Night software NASA website and other interactive websites Create your own: Space Adventure Web Quest Presentations

20. Hands-on Flower Dissection

23. Going Further & Increasing Interactivity and Student Engagement Let?s seamlessly incorporate the technology into the concrete, hands-on activities The two previous examples illustrated separate activities for the hands-on with concrete manipulatives and then using technology tools and resources as an additional means to deliver content, an extension, a follow-up, or as a means for students to demonstrate their learning. These are very legitimate uses of technology, but we can also blend technology directly into hands-on activities. An example that immediately comes to mind is using probes to collect data. Let?s look at a couple more.The two previous examples illustrated separate activities for the hands-on with concrete manipulatives and then using technology tools and resources as an additional means to deliver content, an extension, a follow-up, or as a means for students to demonstrate their learning.

24. Document Cameras & Interactive Whiteboards

25. *Activities modified from: AIMS (Activities Integrating Math and Science) FOSS (Full Option Science System) Do Larger Pumpkins Have More Seeds than Smaller Pumpkins? (Gr 1-2) Overview of investigation- pumpkin lifecycle, key question, concepts (m & s) Show hands-on LP: document, recording sheet, pics Issues- classroom viewing of pumpkin & seeds, collaboration on procedures how to count, modeling grouping. Collecting group & class data What technologies can enhance this lesson? Doc camera (show pumpkin, demo grouping/counting) Recording sheet- doc camera or laptop & projected- enter data right in document More- Interactive White board + doc camera- flip chart, pumpkin growth images, collaborate on procedure (how to count large #), model grouping, student practice, students come up to help enter results, use interactive base ten blocks to reinforce. Show results from other classes Wiki- collaborate & compile data with other students or classes.
