Teacher Tube video-
I chose Mathmaticious for a couple of reasons. First, its entertaining, this kid spent a lot of time to write a parody of the popular song using what he obviously is interested in, which is math. I love that he is loving making this video because he gets to rap about quadratic equations and pi. I really enjoyed watching it. Second, I chose this video because it was made entirely by a student. I think this video would be great to break the ice on the first day of an Algebra course or something. It's an educational and entertaning video all in one. I loved it!
Technology & Learning Wordle
We were asked to write a short paragraph on the role of technology in learning. Then we used wordle.net to create a image with the key words from our paragraph. I got sucked in and played with the final result for about half an hour. The main idea of my Wordle is that technology can be really effective and useful when used correctly. It is up to the educator to apply it correctly to have the most sucess with the students.
