Separating Prime Cuts of Educational Technology from Common "Mystery Meat"


calcoverviewgifSo, what exactly is a mathcast?

Basically, a mathcast is a screen recording of a person’s written work on an electronic whiteboard that is captured along with their voice. My students and I created mathcasts on a regular basis in my Algebra 2, Pre Calculus, and AP Calculus classes at Woodland High School and implemented mathcasts this year at Maryknoll High School.

    I am a special education teacher who just recently began teaching Pre-Alg and Alg 1 to learning support students. I am also taking a course as part of a Classrooms of the Future grant and am looking for ways to use technology in my classroom. Students are constantly using tech outside of the classroom with their computers, cell phones, video games etc and I am looking for a way to make math fun, relevant and interesting.
