“IPEVO Wishpool: Your wish just came true.”
Oh, how I loved seeing that message in my email! Those words were wonderful validation, an affirmation of my teaching and pedagogy.
During a Global Math Department webinar a number of weeks ago, Alisan shared her experience with IPEVO Wishpool. All she had to do was explain how the document camera would be an asset to her teaching and the students’ learning. After review, her wish was granted! When Algebrainiac tweeted that she had her wish granted, I decided to submit a wish of my own.
“Integrating language into math has been a driving force in the development of my curriculum. Lessons and activities focus on both written and oral expression. Similar to essays, problem solving solutions would benefit from peer review. Unfortunately, not enough opportunities exist for students to demonstrate their process for solving. The use of a document camera would allow students to model their solutions, celebrating the problem solving process, as well as provide opportunities for the enhancement of math writing skills.”
And just like that my document camera was on its way! I cannot wait until it is hooked up and ready to go. Then I can advance my own teaching and my students’ learning.
