Tool #9 Assignment, create a new post in which you respond to the following:

-------------------------

Why do you think it is important to tie the technology to the objective?

I believe it is important to tie technology to the objective so that way it will be incorporated into the student's learning.

-------------------------

Why should we hold students accountable for the stations/centers?

Students should be accountable for their stations so they will act responsibly and take an active participation into their learning objectives.

-------------------------

Visit 2 of the applicable links to interactive websites for your content/grade level.

Which sites did you like. How could you use them as stations? How can you hold the students accountable for their time in these stations?

I visited:

-manipula math: it has some interesting demonstration on the reflective properties of conics,

-math interactives: it has some interesting presentations and interactive lessons on parabolas,

- interactive: it some interesting graphs of comic sections where students can explore the different graphs of conics.

In order for me to use these sites, I would create a set of questions or taks they students could accomplish using the tools in these sites - these taks/questions would not only guide them on their explorations, but also hold them accountable as they progress through the taks.

--------------------------

List two to three apps you found for the iPod Touch/iPad that you can use in your classroom. What do you see that station looking like? How can you hold the students accountable for their time in these stations?

I found the following app worth exploring:

-free graphing calculator,

-Myscript- calculator ,

-numbers.

I need to explore each of these apps to further understand how they would help build greater I understanding of algebra 2 objectives. I can see how these tools could be helpful in exploring problems and building new knowledges - they challenges lies in bridging these tools with Algebra 2 and time.

--------------------------------

What about other ways to use the iPod Touch/iPad? Share another way you can see your students using the device as a station.

I foresee my students using the iPads to watch videos of class lessons that they are struggling with. I tried some this year using my websites mathematicsmadeez.weebly.com and nhsalgebra2.weebly.com - students really enjoyed and found them valuable.
