Media Application Scenarios
This storyboard does not have a description.
Elementary Scenario: Mr. B is introducing his 4th-grade students to fractions, and his curriculum requires students to solve word problems using fraction skills. His students are struggling, and he is not certain whether it is because they lack the basic fraction skills or whether they are struggling with comprehending what the problem requires them to do. He is looking for technology resources to assist his students.
Suggestion: I would first suggest reviewing the basic fraction skills using interactive games with the whole group and small groups. Then use some sort of projector to model how to solve word problems involving fractions. http://resources.woodlands-junior.kent.sch.uk/ maths/fractions/index.htm http://www.maths-games.org/fraction-games.html
Middle School Scenario: Mrs. C is a 7th-grade science teacher with a diverse group of students. She is creating a lesson plan around habitat loss in local environments and wants to use technology to help support her diverse students. She is struggling, and as a teacher leader, you are mentoring her thorough using technology to help meet their needs.
Suggestion: I would suggest starting the lesson with a video on habitats that can be shown on a starboard or projector of some sort to spark the students' interests and to ensure that all students had some basic knowledge of the subject. Then I would have the students to work in small groups to do some computer research on different habitat loss. http://www.earthtimes.org/encyclopaedia/ environmental-issues/habitat-loss-degradation/ http://www.eoearth.org/view/article/153224/
High School Scenario: Ms. R is a high-school English teacher who is preparing students for a state-mandated test with a heavy reading and literature focus. Because this test is a graduation requirement, she wants to ensure her students will perform well and pass the test. She has come to you looking for help on using technology to help students prepare for this test.
Suggestion: I would start by modeling how to do a close read using a starboard or some sort of projector. I would show students how to go about interpreting what they read and how to use the text to answer questions about the text. I would also have students do online practice tests with partners and independently and go over testing tips and strategies. http://www.webenglishteacher.com/ close-reading-high-school.html http://www.4tests.com/exams/exams.asp?cid=2
