From Scantron to Personalized Learning: A Teacher's Decade in Review

Posted by Bara Levitt on 1/3/20 6:16 PM

When I started teaching in 2010, the technology in my classroom and school building was extremely limited. 

I remember visiting another school during a professional development session and being amazed by their handheld clickers and by a system in the corner where students could feed in a scantron and immediately receive a set of questions printed out just for them.

5 Questions to Consider when Integrating Technology into Lesson Plans

Posted by Bara Levitt on 8/26/19 1:24 PM

School districts, now more than ever, are relying on technology in the classroom. Where in the past there may have only been a few options to choose from, today the number of options is vast. Last school year, U.S. school districts accessed an average of 703 different EdTech tools every month. This represents a 28% increase over the 2017-2018 school year. With so many tech tools available, how can teachers go about deciding the what, when, and how of tech tool integration? As with many things in the classroom, the answer actually begins with a question, or in this case, 5. 

Here are 5 questions to consider when integrating technology into lesson plans in order to most effectively address student and classwide goals:

When “Equal” Isn’t Equal: 3 Tips Towards Digital Mathematical Equity

Posted by John Standal on 8/20/19 1:13 PM

When you consider how to make digital math instruction equal and fair for all students, you are likely referring to the concept of digital mathematical equity. Initially, digital mathematical equity may appear to be simple and straightforward. However, as you scratch the surface, you can quickly begin to see how complicated reaching digital mathematical equity has become.

Defining Mathematical Equity

First, it is important to define the two components of digital mathematical equity: mathematical equity and digital equity. According to The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, creating, supporting, and sustaining a culture of mathematical equity can be defined as:

Take a Hike on Knowre’s Walk Me Through Trail

Posted by Bara Levitt on 7/31/19 3:51 PM

“You’ll have a great time,” the visitor center greeter said as we headed towards the trail in upstate New York. The hike was described as fun, but challenging, and we figured, despite rarely ever hiking, that we’d all be fine. Countless hours later we descended the trail thankful to be alive. Simply put, the trail was much more difficult than we could have ever imagined. While there were optional ladders and ledges placed at certain parts, in others we couldn’t figure out why these supremely helpful elements were frustratingly missing.

It is important when tackling a challenge or learning something new that there are certain supports in place to maximize desired outcomes, decrease frustration, and maintain motivation (at one point on the trail I told my friends it was best they just leave me there). Without the availability of these critical elements it’s all too easy to give up.
