Today the students in my College Prep math class asked me to stop the video I was showing on the properties of logs so they could take notes. I show the videos using the smart board because I have limited bandwidth and we don't have the serious stuttering problem that often happens if everyone is trying to watch a video at once.
I am going to explore the showme and Educreation apps over the summer. I am thinking of using the learning menu idea where I give them the menu at the beginning of the unit and let them choose a couple projects that are due at the end of the unit right before the test. I hope that I can have the students use either of those apps for one of the projects on the menu.
I have so much to do this summer as I plan my units. I am going to try to have more integrated technology but it also depends on what changes they make over the summer.
