Math Training TEI Flipchart

I would like to extend a thank you to Michael George, Instructional Technologist, at Fredericksburg City Public Schools, for the opportunity to be a part of the ActivInspire training with his staff. Our consultant, Penny Izquierdo, did a wonderful job of helping me understand all of the unique features of ActivInspire as well as the learner response systems. I am excited to look at my flipchart designs with  some new possibilities. I am already considering how to find funds for purchasing ActivExpressions!
In the meantime, I would like to share a flipchart that is geared for trainers to use in showing how to modify TEI items in flipcharts.This flipchart is designed to help introduce TEI items by first having participants practice mini-tasks. Please feel free to use this flipchart as needed.

Fractions TEI Flipchart

This flipchart contains TEI (technology enhanced items) questions pertaining to fractions. K-6 math teachers in King George County Schools worked in grade levels to incorporate increased rigor in the teaching of fractions. One way to help students with this is by creating questions that can be used as assessments for learning. In using these with your students, note their ability to not only use the tools, but understand the thinking that is involved with answering these.

Math 3rd-7th Make It - Take It - TEI

This flipchart has all of the sample math TEI (technology enhanced items) questions for grades 3 - 7. Each sample is followed with a template of the sample item that can be modified for any grade level. If you are new to using ActivInspire, the first few pages will help to orient you to the basic skills you need to work with the templates.
I hope that you will find these helpful resources in creating TEI flipcharts for your students. My school division does not have Promethean Boards in every classroom. In testing how these flipcharts work in a computer lab setting,  I have worked with several teachers and classrooms. We had no problems having the students open the flipchart and use them individually on a PC or laptop. The students enjoyed using the tools in ActivInspire and they were able to simulate the TEI question types.
