The 6 Simple Machines

Posted on May 28, 2014 by Brian Dawson Last Activity on May 30, 2014

This iBook incorporates interactive widgets made using Adobe Edge Animate throughout the book.  Each interactive widget shows how the simple machine works, with many showing how mechanical advantage is gained using these simple machines.  As a core curricular topic, students at the middle school level are required to know these machines, understand the advantage we get from using them, and how they can be combined together to form more complex machines.  This 29 page iBook works all of these concepts in to give the student a complete understanding of the 6 simple machines.  Auto graded assessments, interactive puzzles, photo galleries and videos for iOS help to complete the picture.   The resources listed include a link to this iBook (free) for Mac and iPad users on the iTunes bookstore and a PDF version (static) showing the content, but not the interactive components.

Animation (Mini worlds)

Posted on Apr 29, 2014 by Brett Kent Last Activity on Sep 5, 2014

This is a unit of work that some year 4 students (9 yo) worked on as part of a unit of work on 'mini worlds' (reptiles and amphibians). The students were instructed to make an animation explaining how the reptile or amphibian of their choice was able to survive in its environment. The program that is included was an initial draft that the final project developed from. In the draft program it shows a duration of 6 weeks although this is only due to the time allocated, it could be completed in a class in as little as two days with young students. (it is pretty easy and fun to do)

Fractions, Decimals and Percents

Posted on Apr 16, 2014 by Brian Dawson Last Activity on Apr 17, 2014

This tutorial iBook is leveled at the primary grades 3-5.  Teaching fractions, decimals and percents are tied together in comparing and associating with each other.  Basic arithmetic skills with fractions and decimals are reviewed using multimedia and interactive animations, including in-book assessments.  A new approach was taken in this iBook as I collaborated with a high school student, Dominic Redding, in (fellow AEL) Mike Skocko's class 3,000 miles away using Edge Animate, to create an exciting game that encourages kids to improve their skills in converting from fractions to decimals to percents.  Kids teaching kids...what a concept.  The actual game widget is attached.
