Technology integration took place during math today. Using whole class instruction, students were introduced to four math websites with Mr. Callahan and Mrs. Rivenburg. Using the Mimio interactive whiteboard students learned to navigate through the sites. Students were able to get a taste of the skills and strategies that would be available to them. These websites are valuable for remediation, reinforcement, and enrichment of math skills.
Students were able to practice geometry, number sense, and critical thinking skills. After whole class instruction, students had a breakout session using the Mimio Interactive whiteboard for hands-on experience collaborating on solutions to given problems. While some students were at the Mimio board, other students, in groups of six, explored the websites presented. As evident in the pictures below, students were engaged, enthusiastic, and eager to utilize their math skills and “show what they know!”
