I struggled for a way to do it in my 6th grade Gemara class because they are lacking so many basic skills, however I found that in my afternoon 3rd grade I was able to make a differentiated lesson for Chumash. I would divide them into 3 groups and have them work on a series of Chumash activities. Then I would circle around to each group and give them a mini lesson according to their abilities.
I tried it with 3 mice. Either way you need a few USB hubs. My computer did (2 yrs old running Vista AMD Turion chip 2 Ghz- not dual core) experience some time lag with the mice when using corded mice. When I used a bluetooth wireless mouse it worked fine. Even if it all worked perfectly, with corded mice you are limited to several groups just because of the tangle of wires. I had a few boys offer to bring in wireless mice, which might be a solution. Either way it is another good AP trick to use. I told it to two people who were going to be presenting at the TU convention and apparently it was mentioned. One thing that worked for me (with this and the Smoothboard setup) was to make it a class project where the boys feel they are part of the figuring it out project. It made a tremendous excitement in my classroom. Thank you for the heads up and lets stay in touch to see what you can do with this.
I am looking forward to checking it out. What is your setup using 20 mice/mouses (what is the plural of a computer mouse?) and making it accessible to all the kids?
You are "bavarning" my biggest problem with a Smartboard/Wii remote Smoothboard (I use both) that when one kid is using it, what are the other 19 kids doing? It is a very good tool, but not a means to itself. Whereas when I use PowerPoint, I am presenting an idea visually to the entire class...though it is not interactive the same way. I do use triggers which gives it a little interactivity and "touch screenness" but it is more for the shtick in order to keep the boys excited about it.
I am looking to do a Haschalas Rashi play with my Third grade. If there os one out there please let me know. Maternitybyshifi@msn.com If not I have an idea and will write it myself. I will be happy to post it here if it works out.
