10 & 20 Frame Thanks to Google Slides

This Google Slide 10 & 20 Frame Manipulative was inspired by conversations via my Twitter PLN.  I find Google Slide to be an easy way for creating quick manipulatives which can pack a powerful punch. The manipulatives can be used with an Interactive Whiteboard (IWB) or large touch screen for whole group and small group instruction. It can also be used by the individual student for practice or support on a one to one device.

One of the beauties of using a Google Slide as a manipulative is it can be accessed outside of school. This may provide the student with extra support for doing homework, independent practice or studying before a test.  When the manipulative is shared between the teacher and student it can provide valuable insight for how the information is being digested by the student. This information may assist a teacher in deciding if  re-teaching is necessary for the content covered by the manipulative. I see manipulatives of this kind as a “Win-Win” for both the teacher and student.

The Power of Global Collaboration for Supporting Education…

Twitter Java

There I was sitting having my morning cup of java when my eyes fell upon this tweet from John Rouchka @jrouchka!

Immediately I put my cup of coffee down to click and see John’s YouTube video. I was amazed seeing the modification he made  and knew right away the math interactive needed to go one step further. However I didn’t know enough about using Google Spreadsheets functions. Thanks to the internet I was able to correspond with John. I asked if he would mind sharing the template with me and making some slight adjustments. He complied with my requests and the below math interactive was created through global collaboration.  I’m amazed with the power of collaboration this globally connected world has created for supporting educators and the future of education.
