Path C: The Integrated Classroom
Lead Teacher: Wendy Freebersyser
Implement technology into my classroom over the next two years so that the technology becomes as necessary to my students and classroom as a pencil, paper and textbook are.
The students will gain mastery over the TI graphing calculator, several types of software, the smartboard and have extensive opportunities brought into the classroom via the internet.
This mastery over the technology will insure all of my students will reach the NET standards as well as the enhancement of their mathematics knowledge.
The focus of technology shifted to teaching methodology.
The teacher gained mastery of technologies and utilizes the appropriate mix of technologies to do the following:
Get students engaged
Get feedback from students
Individualize learning for every student
Put the learning in the hands of the individual student.
Students do not gain a mastery over the technology but do gain a better understanding of abstract higher level mathematical concepts, gain a confidence in mathematics and achieve success with the curriculum at hand.
