The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

I teach Math 8 and I'm doing an inquiry on how providing increased
options for at-home support will affect my students' competence and
confidence in mathematics.

Some strategies I currently use are:
-having a class website with a blog and wiki attached
-uploading notes, assignments and providing links on the site for games and further
support
-email correspondence with students seeking support

I want to kick it up a notch.  Some ideas I am throwing around are:
-using a wireless tablo to record process with voicethread (although I have no
idea how to do this yet)
-using Skype to set up some tutorial times in the evenings for students needing some extra support (but not too
time consuming, maybe half hour a few times/week)

Does anyone have any other ideas as to how I can go about this? Thanks!!!

You might also want to add links to math videos online that will provide step by step instructions that can be paused and rewatched. I use both Khan academy http://www.khanacademy.org/ and brightstorm math http://www.brightstorm.com/math/algebra/.

 

Good luck,
