its ability to climb a tree,
it will live its whole life
believing that it is stupid."
- Albert Einstein

Technology in Math and Science
In Elementary Schools: Go Math!
“Classic literary devices, such as mood or imagery can come alive through sound effects, visual images, and dynamic transitions.”
- Jen Scott Curwood
Students were “able to understand how the presence, absence, or co-occurrence
of specific modes allowed them to better share their experiences, their beliefs,
and their thoughts.”
- Jen Scott Curwood
“Blogs allow students to link to and connect ideas (in the form of pictures, podcasts, videos, and other multimedia), make their thinking about ideas transparent, and have others link to their posts.”
- Denise Johnson
In Secondary Schools: Alice and Computer Science
Hand-Held
Graphing
Calculator
Using technology can help students in better understanding these often difficult topics.
"Author's blogs can provide great
inspiration and resources for
students' writing."
- Denise Johnson
“Teachers must model for students how to find, manage,
organize, and engage with online resources in ways that
promote critical thinking.”
- Denise Johnson
The game like atmosphere of these programs, and fun characters they incorporate,encourage kids to practice their math skills.
Khan Academy
"It (Alice) allows students to learn fundamental programming concepts in the context of creating animated movies and simple video games" -alice.org
“The new version that we're now beginning on will gradually morph into a more
traditional Java programming environment. So we're talking about the training
wheels gradually dropping off.” -Randy Pausch
"GO Math!, for Kindergarten–Grade 6, combines fresh, teaching approaches with never before seen components that offer everything needed to address the rigors of new standards and assessments." - hmheducation.com
"I teach the way that I wish I was taught."
—Sal Khan
"Students can make use of our extensive video library, interactive challenges, and assessments from any computer with access to the web.....Coaches, parents, and teachers have unprecedented visibility into what their students are learning and doing on the Khan Academy." -khanacademy.org

Compassion in Education
"Compassionate teachers fill a void left by working parents who aren't able to devote enough attention to their children. Teachers don't just teach; they can be vital personalities who help young people to mature, to understand the world and to understand themselves. A good education consists of much more than useful facts and marketable skills."
- Charles Platt
"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."
- Benjamin Franklin
