Laptop Learning Challenge | Block Scheduling, Tracking |
American Mathematical Monthly LAPTOP LEARNING CHALLENGE (LLC) - Toshiba/NSTA http://www.nsta.org/programs/laptop/ A challenge that rewarded twenty K-12 educators for their innovative uses of laptop computers. The lessons have science, mathematics, and technology components and take place in the classroom, in the field, or in informal science institutions. There are five lessons in each of four categories: Elementary, Middle, and High School levels, and Informal Science (grades K-12). They are designed to be useful for teachers planning a science or math activity, for pre-service preparation, and for in-service professional development. Abstracts and downloadable PDF files are provided for the twenty exemplary lessons. Browse them by subject or level: http://www.nsta.org/programs/laptop/lessons/subject.htm -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- BLOCK SCHEDULING, TRACKING/ABILITY GROUPING - Math Forum Questions about how best to organize classrooms continue to engage educators and parents, and discussions pro and con appear regularly on the Web.
