Week 15: Nspiration
The 3 videos below will give you a brief idea of the Nspire’s capabilities. If you feel like it, please share your thoughts about the Nspire.
They have a youtube channel. Link below.
Find a lesson at TI Activities (link below), relevant to a topic that could be connected to the use of manipulative, real world applications, and/or social action. If you do not find anything you may also share your own ideas as to how you may see yourself incorporating the Nspire into the classroom or a lesson.
Post the link to the TI Activity you found. Briefly describe how you would implement the use of your activity.
So my scholars would be analyzing nutritional choices & habits; in terms of the community, family, and self. Based off the activity, they would be recording and analyzing the calories, fat, and sodium in food. I would have my scholars record their nutritional intake for a school week, estimate the nutritional value of a local store, and conduct a survey about the nutrition in the community and school. I would have scholars represent the data in 3 ways; a) through the Nspire, b) by hand, and c) through a computer or other technological resource that supports graphing. Based off their data collection and that from the Nspire activity, the scholars will share their thoughts about the information.
Think of an activity that could be an extension through the use of another technological resource or outlet.
I would have my scholars share their information and findings through Glogster. A rubric would be provided so scholars would know what their design will be graded on. They could also begin brainstorming small and consistent solutions for our activities focus.
