Proposal in!

April 7, 2018

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 […]

More visuals :)

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 […]

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 […]

So!   IN between applying for a job to help enhance and create math courses… I’m trying to … build a math course!   For our folks who need to prep for the test … or already took the test and need to learn stuff… We’ve got Modumath, but its online presence is — well, […]
