## Electronic Base Ten Blocks

Subject: Math

##### Video Transcription

[Teacher voiceover]

The lesson today is using division with the Smart Board and Smart Notebook technologies, and they are dividing using base 10 blocks using the infinite cloning ability on the Smart Notebook technology. They are able to then manipulate the base 10 blocks and divide using the manipulatives on the smart technology. I think it really helps the students work collaboratively, because they are able to challenge each other and they can help each other through the problem-solving process. They are able to work with one another with their strengths and their weaknesses, and they’re able to help one another get through each problem.

Objectives

• Students will complete division problems using electronic base ten blocks.

Procedure

• Students will work with a partner to use electronic base ten blocks in Smart Notebook to solve division problems.

Technology Present

• Laptops
• Smart Notebook software

Note: The TIM is about teaching, not technology. The placement of a lesson on the TIM is based entirely on the teaching practices demonstrated in the lesson and not on the specific technology employed. Effective pedagogy is our concern, not whether the tech involved is the latest, greatest, or most expensive. In fact, most of the sample videos were recorded some time ago as part of the original development of the Technology Integration Matrix. As you view these videos, focus on the teaching practices. When using the TIM-O to observe a lesson, remember that you can display the detailed indicators by clicking the tab on the right if you are completing a Matrix-based observation or are reviewing the TIM profile of a question-based lesson. The TIM Tools Admin Guide contains additional suggestions for observing a lesson and developing a TIM profile.
