Comprehensive Curriculum + Technology = a Pur-r-r-fect Combination LACUE Spring, 2006 Rapides Parish Instructional Technology Facilitators Terri Carpenter David Cox Mary Cox Cherry McNease Mary Moore

We must open the doors to opportunity. But we must also equip our people to walk through those doors. …Lyndon B. Johnson

Effective integration of technology is achieved when students are able to select technology tools to help them obtain information in a timely manner, analyze and synthesize the information, and present it professionally. The technology should become an integral part of how the classroom functions -- as accessible as all other classroom tools. National Educational Technology Standards for Students International Society for Technology in Education Technology Integration is…

How to Integrate Technology? Comprehensive Curriculum + Technology Pur-r-r-fect together

GLE 1. Model, read, and write place values for numbers through 999 in word, standard, and expanded form (N-1-E) Use appropriate software (e.g. KidPix, Tux Paint, Draw, PowerPoint) to type number in digit form, represent the number with pictures, and type expanded notation. Grade 2 Mathematics Unit 1: Numbers, Numerals, and Data

GLE 4: Count and write the value of amounts of money up to \$1.00 using ¢ and \$ (N-2-E) (N-6-E) (M-1-E) (M-5-E) Grade 2 Mathematics Unit 3: Money, Time, and Estimation Students can use the free program Tux Paint to show different ways to make specific money amounts. Download from http://www.newbreedsoftware.com/tuxpaint/download/

GLE 40a.Tell and retell stories with sequential order, including setting, character, and simple plot (ELA-4- E3) Use PowerPoint, KidPix, etc. to retell a story read in class. The Three Little Pigs Grade 2 English Language Arts Unit 1: Lets Read

GLE 45. Use manipulatives to discuss the probability of an event (e.g., number cubes, spinners to determine what is most likely or least likely) (D-5-E) Probability http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/mathsfile/ shockwave/games/fish.html http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/mathsfile/ shockwave/games/fish.html Using Tux Paint, KidPix, PowerPoint set up a scene that illustrates a teacher mandated scenario. Students generate their own ideas of combination. Grade 3 Mathematics Unit 1: Graphs, Growth, and Patterns

Grade 4 Science Unit 1: Measuring and Comparing In this unit, various investigations require accurate measuring using a variety of tools and units of measure. Measuring and comparing are two skills that are required and practiced throughout the science units and across the curriculum.

GLE 27. Describe how the amount of force needed to cause an object to change its motion depends on the mass of the object (PS-E-B4) Interactive Web-sites can be used to extend the understanding of force. Combine the Web-sites with charts to record data. Friction http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/scienceclips/ages/8 _9/friction.shtml Forces in Action http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/scienceclips/ages/1 0_11/forces_action.shtml Grade 4 Science Unit 1: Measuring and Comparing

Observing the Water Cycle (GLEs: 3, 5, 6, 10, 12, 24, 25) Water Science for Schools http://ga.water.usgs.gov/edu/ http://ga.water.usgs.gov/edu/ US Geological Survey's (USGS) Water Science for Schools web site! They offer information on many aspects of water, along with pictures, data, maps, and an interactive center where you can give opinions and test your water knowledge. Grade 4 Science Unit 1: Measuring and Comparing

Plane Figures 3-D Figures

Science Unit 3: Science as an Inquiry GLE: 8. Express data in a variety of ways by constructing illustrations, graphs, charts, tables, concept maps, and oral and written explanations as appropriate (SI-E-A5) (SI-E- B4) The Graph Club or http://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/graphing/ http://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/graphing/

Social Studies Unit 4: Community Helpers GLE: 8. : Identify simple descriptions of the work people do and the names of related jobs in the community (E-1A-E4) Kidspiration

How Do I Begin? Start small Dont re-invent the wheel Go prepared, do the activity ahead of time Have a plan B Plan to teach and teach with a plan –Teach your students all skills required to complete the activity in advance.
