Using Creative Technologies in Elementary Math

The Using Creative Technologies in Elementary Math guide provides articles, samples, and lessons to help you find new ideas and approaches that will work for your elementary students. Math is about numbers, but it can also be drawn, manipulated, interpreted, measured, and constructed.

In the Using Creative Technologies in Elementary Math guide you can find:

- A creative approach to building number sense and problem-solving
- Connecting math to art
- Creating visual representations of mathematic concepts

The guide includes lesson plans where:
- students practice counting through the creation of a holiday counting book.
- students compose images from shapes, describe their composition, and create their own version of the book, The Shape of Things.
- students explore length, width, perimeter, and surface area, convert measurements, and work with 2-D representations of 3-D objects.
- students create original artwork and manipulate images to demonstrate understanding of line symmetry.
- students improve multiplication skills by skip counting and creating multiplication word problems.
- The strategies and lessons in this guide will help you engage students in mathematical thinking through creative technology tools.

EJN 5-point test for hate speech

This infographic has been created by the Ethical Journalists Network (EJN) and although primarily aimed at journalists can also be used by teachers as part of their media literacy activities. The idea behind the infographic is to help navigate through the current media landscape minefield and take into consideration the wider context in which people express themselves. What is important is to focus not just on what is said, but what is intended. It’s not just a matter of law or socially acceptable behaviour; it’s a question of whether speech aims to do others harm, particularly at moments when there is the threat of immediate violence.

The guide is aimed at educators working with young people within schools, colleges, universities, work based learning, formal and informal learning settings. It looks at the way in which Facebook can be used as a tool to:
• Support subject teaching across the curriculum
• Support out of school hours learning
• Encourage informal social learning
• Enable easy communication between students, teachers and parents
• Support the development of digital citizenship skills

The guide aims to be practical and hands on, but is not exhaustive. Innovative uses of Facebook are being developed all of the time and as such The Facebook team has created a Facebook for Educators Page run by educators for educators, to share their experiences and recommendations across the UK and beyond.
