Today’s lesson is based on fractions. The students had to create questions using higher order thinking involving fractions, parts of a whole. The second thing they did was to take digital camera pictures of their collections that they were able to bring in from home. We use laptops that include the software Photostory. They were able to upload those into their Photostory, record their questions, and add the animation and music to create a final product.

They would then upload those into think.com so that other students could look at them and answer questions. The students were in teams and the collaboration went very well. They worked together, they understand that they receive a team grade for participation but they also receive a grade for individual effort. They understand that each person’s part is very important and they are very excited about the final product.

Grade Level: 3-5

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.
