SDD Term 3 2010

Nothing like leaving it until the last minute. I am presented 2 sessions at the Maths Collegiate SDD tommorow. My session is on how using Web 2.0 makes teaching Maths so much easier. I will eventually post all of my resources here but to start I have adapted the networked teacher http://www.flickr.com/photos/courosa/2922421696/ to include some examples of web-sites that represent each of the spokes.

Really like this video from Richard St John – Secrets to Success thanks for the tweet @tonnet

Would love to here high school students/ teachers comments on the content and how well we address it as “hidden curriculum” in our schools…

Part 3a – Waiting game produces more fear/anger

Had some negative opinions expressed today when I raised the possibility of going to a DER PL session. It is increasingly becoming obvious that the digital divide is causing a large amount of angst amongst some staff and this is exposing itself as anger against the provision of new technology that will upset the status quo.

How do I convince / cajole someone who believes that laptops will have absolutely no benefit for his class and does not want to even open his mind. Hmmmm…. a challenge. I don’t want to just give up on one of my best Mathematics teachers!

As the rollout to students at our school moves closer those with their heads in the sand are realising that it will actually happen soon! HELP!

As most of my staff are digital immigrants (not yet arrived!) they claim that it is useless to teach them a software program (e.g. GeoGeBra) when they won’t use it for several months – they will forget it. On a more positive note – one of the faculty who was issued with a T1 laptop used it today for the first time with a projector to show the Yr 12 class past examiner comments!

Any suggestions that are left of centre would be greatly appreciated
