Provide a brief explanation if necessary.)Selected levels:__Year one__________CurriculumconnectionsDescription of howthe concept isaddressed, and howit progressesthroughout eachlevel.Content descriptorSelect one content descriptor to focus onin each level that directly correlates toyour concept and shows a clearprogression.ResourceInclude the name of the resource,evidence of the resource and abrief description.Please note: two out of thethree resources must be ICTresources.RationaleJustification for your resourceselection. This must besupported by academicliterature.In some Australianschools located in stateslike victoria, the teachersemploy the use ofcomputer software andmobile applications toeducate kids onmathematics andnumeracy[ CITATIONJoy14 \l 1033 ]. ForInstance, the iPad andiPhone applicationNumberlys is educativeUnder the year one curriculumobserved in the Northern Territory ofAustralia; the education of numbersand algebra to children is consideredessential. As such, with regard to thelearning tool Numberlys, a child istaught on how to solve elementaryaddition and subtraction problems byemploying different strategies. Forinstance, a child is offered the task ofarranging all numbers between 1 and20 in a vertical manner and they areexpected to draw an image or write aThe Numberlys app was adapted froma short story written by William Joyce.The idea or inspiration was taken forman Academy Award-nominatedanimated film made by William andMoonbot Studio. The film payshomage to all individuals whose lifebeyond the black and white[ CITATIONJoy14 \l 1033 ].Moonbots Books, 2014; Ateacher’s guide to the Numberlys.Description: The book teacheschildren on how to view numbersand letters using elements in theirimmediate environment both athome and at school. For instance,by having kids memorize thetelephone numbers, street address,and number of classes in school.
motion picture softwarewith video gameproperties, The overallconcept of theapplication is that in acolourless world, fiveprotagonists 1,2,3,4, and5 set off on a journey tochange the status quo bydiscovering alphabets.The game intends toengrave the forms,shape, and pronunciationof the five numbers andthe letters of thealphabets[ CITATIONBro02 \l 1033 ].word of what they would wish for ifthey could have that many of it.Beside the number 7 a student candraw a mango; indicating that hewould like to have seven of thesefruits. This is expected for all numbersall the way to number twenty.However, if the pupil is unable tocomplete this task on his/her own, aguardian could assist by writing downwhat the child would like to wish for.Nevertheless, the adult should ensurethat the child clearly express their ownopinion and rationalizes theirdecision[ CITATION Byr08 \l 1033 ].Another ICT basedlearning tool that isnormally used byteachers to educate yearone pupil is theScholastic Study Jams.This free online learningplatform allows studentsto tackle differentmathematical modulesfrom an interactive andexplorativeperceptive[ CITATIONCle02 \l 1033 ]. Eachlearning module isThis tool is especially effective in theeducation of measurement andgeometry to year one pupils. Forinstance, the used of units ofmeasurements and durations; pupilslearn about inches, centimetres,pounds, days weeks, months, andyears. Moreover, Study Jam employsthe use of songs, music, dance, andvideos as effective strategies in theeducation of young and enthusiastminds. As such, a year one childlearners how to differentiate betweenminutes and hours through the use of asong. Moreover, the kids areStudy JamsThe resource is referred to asScholastic Study Jams. Study Jamsuses media based technology to educatemathematics and numeracy throughinteractive slideshow, karaoke videos,and comprehensive quizzes. Inaddition, Study Jams provides teachingguidelines meant to aid educators in thedevelopment of teaching strategies. Themost endearing feature of study jams isthat is a free platform that allowschildren to have fun while learningabout important topics[ CITATIONCoh94 \l 1033 ].Study Jams resources areconsidered to be well targeted andclass level appropriate. As such,the platform supports the learningneeds of students as young as 4years old who have already beenintroduced to numeracy duringtheir infancy. The platform hasmore than two hundred resourcesto help year one pupilscomprehend mathematicalconcepts[CITATION Coh88 \l 1033 ].Furthermore, the online platformemploys the use multiple teachingtechniques that are tailored to the
centred ona creativelydesigned video that usesstudent discussions andeducators knowledge toeducate on given areasof interest in numeracy.The process offers real-life situations toelaborate on the step-by-step procedures tosolving a problem like2+3-5. In addition, theonline platform tries toeducate students byallowing them to definemathematicalterminologies anddifficult words.presented with quizzes to assess theirability to recall and retained areasalready covered. In early childhoodeducation an understanding of line isavailed to pupils by showing themdifferent lines and explaining to themwhy each of the lines has a uniquename and value in the world ofgeometry. For instance, a kid learnsthe difference between straight line,curved line, parallel lines, andintersecting lines. Moreover, the useof games like skipping ropes in videosallows pupils to count and keepscores; in order to determine thewinner[CITATION Cle93 \l 1033 ]..learning needs of different pupils.For instance, some students maybe more responsive to a videobased learning approach whileothers may prefer a game centrictechnique to education. Lastly,study jam strives to ensure thatthey keep their teaching contentengaging and fun. Research intochild psychology and behaviorhas shown that children are betterable to remember difficultconcepts; if the learning process ismade interactive andengaging[CITATION Cob03 \l 1033 ].An eBook that haveproved indispensible inthe education ofnumeracy skills inchildren relates toRosie’s Walk. Thisinteresting piece ofliterature for childrenthat was written by PatHutchin is a great way tohelp children learn aboutlanguage and itsThe basic foundation to answering amathematical question stems fromone’s ability to clearly understand andcomprehend the question. As such, afirm command over the examinationlanguage allows the student to clearlycomprehend, assess, and resolve amathematical problem. Therefore,using an eBook like Rosie’s Walk, ateacher can ask the pupils to enact theevents of the books and take snapshotsof the students’ performance toThe resource employed here anacademic article “The Role ofMathematical Fiction in the Learningof Mathematics in Primary school” it iswritten by Janice Padula. The resourceand be retrieve from Padula’s ArticleThe article centers on the teaching ofmathematical concept using practicaland engaging pictures. Moreover, thearticle provides information on howparents can make the learning processengaging and wholesome for theirFew people let alone teachersknow about the existence ofmathematical fiction. A series ofstorybooks that use pictures toeducate on mathematics conceptsand their application. The originof mathematical storybooks canbe traced back to the 1700s withbooks like “Gulliver’s Travel”and in the 1890s with “Alice’sAdventure in Wonderland”. Thesebooks introduce children to
