As I shared in my last four blog posts, this blog series, #TechUptheMath, will focus on six applications over the course of the next few weeks that I believe create transformative learning experiences in math.  They take the learning targets and infuse technology in such a way that it does one or more of the following:

How can  Flipgrid #TechUpThe Math?

Flipgrid is truly an amazing technology tool that continues to innovate and add more enhanced features and options all the time. As I talked about in my previous blog series, The 3Cs of Creation, it is a creation superstar. It gives our students so many options to choose from to share their thinking, it allows for collaboration, and it is clickable.  But it is also a VMI superstar, especially when it comes to sharing math thinking.

Seeing The Power of Flipgrid

While coteaching lessons in my school , many teachers have done Flipgrid lessons with me. 

A  #TechUptheMath Highlight

One great example of why Flipgrid #techsupthemath is the Measurement Fliphunt we did in Mr. Wall's second grade class. Students were partnered up and given a list of items to measure. Click here for the link to the discovery library. They worked together and share how they measured objects using an inch ruler, figured out the best way to share each item and were able to learn from and with other. It was truly amazing!

So how does this #TechUpThe Math and show VMI?

These #TechUptheMath lessons clearly empowered visualizing the math using the digital tools. Students were clearly able to visualize the math concepts that they were learning about using video. They also had opportunities to add other modes to represent their learning such as text, images, etc. Lastly, since they worked on this collaboratively, it increased interaction between students and allowed both teachers to see and hear the students' thinking and give both of us increased interaction with the students!

Join me to #TechUptheMath and share your ideas

Over the next few blog posts, consider adding some of these tech tools into your math classroom. Check their VMI and see how they can transform learning. Post your ideas and successes using the #TechUptheMath and tag me @TannenbaumTech. I can't wait to see what you share!
