when I get out on the bike, the 37 different Really Important Things To Get Done slowly bubble to the top.   Doesn’t always follow me inside… The Two Big Things are the Times Tables Class and the Cool Geogebra Spaced Retrieval Activity.   Another Big THing that is lurking is… doing the Thing Like THe Lumen […]

Proposal in!

I waffled several times (esp. when reading about an upcoming webinar about some OER efforts in adult ed that I didn’t know about),  and then just wrote down what I have been trying to do for the past little while (didn’t go back to the   beginning and the OER-STEM project, but that’s included in my […]

A site full of virtual manipulates, which seem to be javascript 😉 🙂   http://mathsbot.com/ Free, but not “OER.” The Open Education people seem to be mostly about Changing How Institutions Do THings.   Power In Numbers has been about curating and sharing OER for adult ed.   This is at such a smaller scale! I keep finding […]

Student in Math Literacy came in for help “on the computer part” of the course.  Well, Connect has been a source of frustration… a student asked “what does it want me to do?” and I had to answer “reach in and fix the program — it’s wrong again,” as we just asked it for the […]

29 degrees and not much wind at all … and I got out a little early.   I could hear talk and laughter from one early-party group this “Unofficial Saint Patrick’s Day.” Imagining having funding. Imagining organizing (!yes, I think crazy thoughts on bike rides) the Urbana-Champaign node of OER innovations.  The technology and its […]

“remediate the skill, not the standard”

http://www.mathcoachscorner.com/2016/02/remediate-skill-not-standard/ Yes, she recycles her posts but this one’s definitely worth it. It’s not about tech but it could be.   Depending on which wrong answer a student chooses, the teaching should be adapted. We could do that with tech, too.   Pathways… especially if we included humans who could ask questions of the student […]
