Title of Video:
Beginning Math Adventures of the Lollipop Dragon: Place Value
Digital video invites many different student voices, and representations into learning (Yerrick et al., 2003, p.16))
URL of the Video:
Learning Goal(s) or Objective(s)
Students will use tens and ones to represent two digit numbers.
Students will learn that by making groups of ten you can count more quickly and with less errors.
How can we count a large amount faster and without making too many mistakes?
Instructional Delivery Method (How will your students get to the video?):
Teacher will present video through overhead.
: (Will you provide kids a scaffold to help them focus on the important points? If so, what will you use?)
The video uses a tens and ones two-column worksheet that I will create and provide to students. The video has pausing points for the teacher to work with students and solve problems in the video. I will also pause the video at points where I feel the students might need clarification and ask them questions
technology can become a tool for developing and exploring understanding in the classroom (Ching, Wang & Kedem, 2006, p. 267))
: (How will your students organize the information they are learning from the video?)
Students will use the tens and ones two-column worksheet, and National Library of Virtual Manipulatives (NLVM)
: (How will your students share what they know with each other or you? do you want them to?) Students will come up and share their work on the overhead using the base ten blocks from the NLVM
(working with technology allows students more opportunity to work with each other and with their teacher (Roschelle, J., & Pea, R. 1999 p.24).)
: (What will the students create with the information learned from the video?)
Students will also create their own tens and ones like in the video
(because technology can be appealing to many learning styles it often increase students’ motivation (Roschelle & Pea, 1999, p. 23)
. In the video the students bagged lollipops in groups of ten, in the class groups of students will work together to bag small objects in groups of ten. Each group will bag a different object. Then they will count the bags (tens) and the leftovers (ones) display the amount on the provided worksheet. Students will travel to each group and count the bagged and leftover of each group. They will record the total on the worksheet.
: (How will they know that learned? How will you know that they learned?)
Each group will check to see if the students got the correct amount. Students will explain how they came up with their answers. Teacher will oversee and facilitate groups in helping to clarify explanations. Following this students will go to brainpopjr.com and take the place value quiz.
(research shows that students tend to be more collaborative among themselves when working on computers (Ching, Wang and Kedem, 2006, p. 255))
Teacher will decide whether a student should take the easy or the hard quiz located on the website
(classroom networks "overcome one of the greatest hurdles to improving classroom assessment: the collection, management and analysis of data" (Roschelle, Penuel, & Abrahamson, 2004, p. 53)).
