why are we here
Why Are We Here?
  • To give cutting edge info to schools planning for Tech Stimulus grants
  • Share the results of our pilot so far
types of computer based courses
Types of Computer Based Courses
  • Self-paced courses where students work independently at their own pace and all of the instruction is embedded in the program. There is no need for a content knowledgeable teacher
  • A static electronic textbook which is an exact copy of a hard copy textbook. (Kindle like)
  • An electronic textbook with interactive components used by a content knowledgeable instructor
what is ism 3
What is ISM 3?
  • ISM Course 3 is a technology based solution for the teaching and learning of Basic Algebra at the 8th Grade or early HS.
  • ISM Course 3 is called Course 3 because it will be the third of three Middle School courses
  • installs as a course on a Moodle server. Moodle is a FREE Course Management System (CMS). Moodle allows educators to create effective online learning sites. http://moodle.org
who is ism 3
Who is ISM 3?
  • ISM 3 is a product sold by Math Resources Inc. http://www.mathresources.com
  • MRI is 13 year old company located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
  • Content for ISM 3 was developed by a team of members of the National Council of Teachers of Math (NCTM), and programmers from MRI

where is ism 3
Where is ISM 3?
  • ISM 3 is being used in several schools in Madison County including:
    • Wilbur Trimpe M.S. (Bethalto) 8th Grade – Course
    • Granite City H.S. 10th Grade – Credit Recovery
    • Venice Elementary 8th Grade – Supplemental
    • Collinsville 8th Grade – Supplemental
    • Madison County ROE #41 – Demo Site
what does it like in the classroom
What Does It Like in the Classroom?

This ISM3 course needs a math teacher to facilitate the course

These are Middle School Students using full sized MAC laptops. Each student in this school have their own laptop assigned to them that they can take home if they have met district criteria. All content courses in the school are taught using the laptops. Here a student is sharing a solution with his classmates.

slide8

Students still have and check homework. Pilot teachers are grappling with how to best handle the homework assignments and how to turn in and grade the assignments

Students still take notes.

slide9

The Granite City School District purchased a set of netbooks to be used for the ISM3 course. Students only use the netbooks during class.

slide10

Teachers give instruction to the whole class

And then support students as they explore parts of the lesson independently

slide11

Students still collaborate on problems

Granite City purchased mice so each student could use it with their Netbook

slide12

Even is traditional classrooms with limited space

These piloting teachers are finding a way to make it work.

why ism 3
Why ISM 3?
  • Computer-based math curriculum
    • makes the transition from textbook-based learning to computer-driven learning easy & effective
  • Electronic textbooks can be edited continuously
  • Highly interactive approach to learning mathematics
    • gives students & teachers the power to dive right into math concepts
    • ability to explore and interact directly with them
  • New & effective means of fusing your technology & curriculum that requires little PD
  • Approach that transforms technology from a potential time-eater to a time saver
