Let's Tell Our Stories

Posted on October 12, 2010 at 10:45pm 0 Comments

Hi all,


As most of you no doubt know, there are a couple of documentaries which are either out or going to be out soon which probably don't make teachers look like they are doing a very good job. I'm thinking specifically of "Waiting for Superman" and "Race to Nowhere."

Using student created video word problems as assessment

Posted on February 25, 2009 at 5:30am 0 Comments

I'm currently enrolled in my Masters in Educational Technology at the University of British Columbia, and it's a wonderful program, I highly recommend it. One of the things we are currently looking into is something called the Jasper series, which is essentially a series of videos intended to bring real applications of mathematics into the classroom.



The series has a set up a problem in the real world (like rescuing an injured Eagle, etc...) and students are given a bunch of… Continue
