Tech-Enhanced Lesson Idea

There are so many ways to use technology to enhance lessons. One idea I have is for a math lesson on being able to find fractions of a group. First I will set up worksheets on the promethean board. The students will be given pictures as well as the fraction written in notation form. Students will work in partners to decide which picture matches which fraction notation. Then a student will be able to come up to the board and drag the image and the notation into the appropriate columns. During independent practice time each of the students will use a macbook to complete a series of practice problems where they will be required to again find or create the correct image for each fraction notation. I think this is a good way to integrate technology because the students are actively participating and their learning is expanded and enhanced through the use of the technology.

  1. This sounds like a really fun and excited lesson! I'm sure the students would love it, and the promethean board sounds like it would work perfect for this lesson.
