Few weeks back I engaged in twitter about educational research and struggled to describe my frustration with the difference between “educational” research and the stuff I read as a wildlife biology major. Yesterday I got a link to “study” that exemplifies that frustration. I think they’ve got awesome ideas — but this isn’t scientific research. […]

Nothin’ like vacay for nobody to be reading the blog! So, got email about grant funding availability for “Bridge program.” Check out this language: Bridge programs can help reduce the academic burdens students face by introducing them to credit bearing coursework, either as seniors in dual credit, or as incoming freshmen at institutions of higher […]

Also GIMPing and oh!!!! There is a way to tell it to fill similar colors, and to “fill by line art detection,” whatever that is!! I’ve figured out how to put a whole table with 25 different answers on a question, so the whole addition facts table is 4 questions long. (Decided 100 was just […]

I decided to make the “show addition on the number line” multiple guess with different images, because once again Geogebra has a *lovely* illustration of the idea…. but it’s a nice demo, not actually interactive with language. Sigh. Made forty images all with the stupid pasted layer on it so there are cute little circles […]

Okay, not as unfocused as I’d expected for a “back from vacay” (eventho’ no time off). Figured out an important thing in Moodle — the way to get it to MAKE the answer variables is to put them in the “answer” and the variables turn into answer boxes. Now I am trying to figure out […]

So, student hands me the assignment: make an annotated bibliorgraphy. What helped? Explaining that by reading the source a little bit, and noticing what the source had in it, when you started to write, you already knew more about what you were going to write.

It’s 9:10 of this Wednesday and I’m “taking the course” about formula questions, and gleaning Open Source knowledge too. Yesterday I went to a sales pitch for EBSCO platform with a ton of tutorials … none of which appear to be particularly excellent and the admins were suggesting hey, we should have lots of different […]

…. okay, amount of TIME ACTUALLY DOING THIS is … well, the good news is I can say “it doesn’t take much time to do!” which is notthe same as “good grief, it takes a lot of time before it’s done.” I’m also wondering if the only way to have students label more than one […]

I’m doing “part part whole” puzzles. Identify parts and wholes. Well, I *can* — AND I KNOW I ALREADY DID BUT I CANNOT FIND IT — make the tables so that 2 is 40% and 3 is 60% and the “whole” does “colspan = 2” (because for somereason it just shoves the other parts to […]
