INTEGRATED PROJECT 026
The Role of ICT as a Support To Learning
Review of Numbershark.
This disk is suitable for all classes, in this instance itís use was
confined to Second Class.
The games are in five groups in the Main Menu.
for number concepts
for basic concepts and skills
for learning maths signs, addition, subtraction etc.
with rote practice included
for sharpening concepts.
Games can be played in any order and repeated as often as
the student wishes. Like
Wordshark a reward game appears at the
end of each game. This is very popular with the students.
Our main emphasis was on the practice of number bonds - adds and
subtracts-up to 10 first and then up to 20. Using the special Teacher
control facility it was possible to programme students for specific themes
and know that when they went to the computer they were confined to work
selected by me. The students were quite happy with this, particularly as
it meant that the work selected was within their capability. The
continuous repetition of basic themes meant the students had invaluable
practice in a fun way with the more basic maths on their program.
Using the special Teacher facility
I can regularly check on games played,
and judge what progress has been made.
The CD is both student and teacher friendly.
