#ISTE12: Web 2.0 and other wonders for math (Karen Ferrell)

Karen Ferrel


Notes (from presenters in bold, from me in italics):

This session just provided some good websites to use in math.  Most of them have been around for a while, but here are some that I'm not using fully yet.
  • - online bulletin board where you can add notes, pictures, videos, any type of file and organize them any way you want.
  • - create word clouds when you input text.  The more the word shows up, the bigger it is.  Can rearrange the wordle until you like it.
  • - an online grading tool that incorporates with GoogleDocs/GoogleForms.  It looks like a lower-tech version of what Andy Schwen showed at #flipcon12.  See instructional video here  It looks pretty cool and I'm wondering how I could incorporate it into my class.  Ramsey Musallam just recorded a 10 minute full instructional video here! Thanks Ramsey!
  • - Creative way for students to "collage" projects. You can create a free account, or you can pay to be able to manage classes and stuff.
  • - Website with a lot of online manipulatives, games, etc. I've known about this site for the last 5 years and haven't taken the time to play around with it quite yet.
  • National Library of Virtual Manipulatives (NLVM) - another site I've known about for the last 5 years but just haven't played around with yet.
  • - More online activites on tab
