I had the privilege to be part of a meeting with a few Fujitsu representatives regarding our one-to-one tablet project at the school. Anyone that reads this blog knows how excited the the tablet PC and Web 2.0 topics makes me; therefore, I felt like a kid in a candy store. We are expanding the project this next year to include essentially all senior level students and some junior level students in a couple Honors/AP courses. My AP Computer Science and AP Calculus AB class will both be one-to-one. I have still not been able to use the full power of the one-to-one tablet solution in any of the math courses. My AP Calculus AB class this year will be my first chance. I am SOOOO EXCITED.
After the meeting, I started thinking about all of the Web 2.0 topics and projects that I have used in my three years of teaching.
Here is the list I came up with of Web 2.0 interaction with the classroom:
- Advanced Web Development PowerPoint, Wiki, & Podcast Project – Kept Private
- Lefty Grove Baseball League Website (leftygrovebaseball.org)
- Scribe Hall of Fame
- Student Math Commercials/Videos for Honors Algebra II and Pre-Calculus on YouTube
- Mr. Higgins’ Tie Project (Students Seemed to Really Like this a lot)
- Tech Boot Camp 2009
- 2007 – 2008 Honors Algebra II Class Blog
- 2008 – 2009 AP Computer Science Class Blog
- 2008 – 2009 Algebra I Class Blog
- 2008 – 2009 Honors Algebra II Class Blog
- 2008 – 2009 Pre-Calculus Class Blog
- I’m sure there are a few more that I can’t remember…or find a link in my collection.
For me, the mathematics videos were most rewarding and the students really enjoyed them a great deal. However, I am looking forward to interacting with each student holding a tablet PC. Moodle is going to be a HUGE piece of this puzzle.
