The paper creates a series of five lessons in math and science demonstrating how technology can be used to teach content. The five forms of technology demonstrated include YouTube videos for geometry, a GUI for calculating a family's carbon footprint, a calculator for figuring sales tax and a tip, an interactive website to teach about tsunamis and a digital camera to learn about the rotation of the Earth on its axis.
From the Paper:"Math Lesson One: Using YouTube To Teach Geometry. In this lesson students use songs and cartoon images on YouTube to learn geometric shapes and then create their own skits or PowerPoint presentations modeled after these videos. Pairs of students view three videos ("Polly had a polygon," "The Shape Song: An Instructional song for Young Children" and "Polygon" by Peter Weatherall).
