In a recent post, Ed Tech Specialist Tod Johnston discusses how educators can leverage digital tools to position students as active partners in their learning. Digital tools are a necessity during this time of remote learning, yet those we offer—and how we offer
In a remote environment, how can Bridges educators provide appropriate scaffolds and be responsive to student thinking? Sharing MLC apps with students can be a powerful approach, particularly when working with students in an asynchronous setting.
What does it mean to share with an MLC app? Put simply, Bridges educators can build a “saved state” task that they share with their students by way of an 8-character share code or link. After completing the task, students can share their thinking with their teachers and classmates.
Bridges students learn more than one way to solve multi-digit multiplication expressions. This enables them to select the strategy that is most efficient for any given problem. In addition to the standard algorithm that many of us were taught, fifth graders also investigate:
