How can we support better student learning in math and science?
In this session, I will use multimedia videos and research findings to lead a discussion about student learning during online problem-solving practice in mathematics and science. We will discuss characteristics that sometimes prevent students from gaining deep, long-lasting understanding of math and science concepts, especially when working with computerized practice tools. I will demonstrate the features of a computer-based Intelligent Tutoring System that has been developed for geometry, and discuss how we’ve used this system to investigate student learning and identify problematic student behaviors and thinking during computer-supported mathematics practice. Finally, I will present practical implications from the research findings, both for geometry as well as other math and science domains. We will discuss how teachers can support deep student learning, with and without computer technologies.

Using Prezi and Google Docs for Collaborative Curriculum Development
The presentation focuses on using Prezi.com as a format for collaborative curriculum mapping between teachers, in conjunction with Google Docs to create a shared database of teacher resources. Both Prezi and Google Docs are free, collaborative, and cloud-based. Using these tools in a synergistic way, educators can work together and share resources in real-time without the need to schedule face-to-face communication. The curriculum map we are developing in Prezi.com outlines a simple to follow visual representation of the Utah State Core. Each of the lesson summaries in the curriculum map have a resources section where shared docs are listed by file name and owner/creator. This allows any teacher that is added to the shared system access to a year-long curriculum flow with available resources to choose from. The strength in the project is the more people collaborate in it, the better it will become.

This is not a training on the "how-to's" of Google Docs or Prezi and assumes the participant is somewhat familiar with these programs.
