Agenda

Agenda

  • Purpose

  • Personal Introductions

  • Discussion: Evaluating Technology

  • “How can I …” web-site introduction

  • Exploration and Evaluation

  • Debrief Discussion: Hopes and Concerns


Purpose

Purpose

  • To introduce possible technologies for

    • Your math students

    • Your own ongoing professional development

  • To have a dialog about learning and technology

  • To create a framework for evaluating technology (and hopefully help you prepare for your upcoming assignment)


Discussion evaluating technology

Discussion:Evaluating Technology

Developing Criteria:

How can you tell what’s really good?

(a Mind Map Brainstorming Experience)


Using ms excel in the classroom

Using MS Excel in the Classroom

What Learning Affordances Does MSExcel Provide?

  • What it can do: A discussion of features and functions

  • How you can use it: A brief look at some example lesson plans


Math learning issues how can i

Math Learning Issues: “How can I …”

Our “incomplete sampling” of technologies that answer math teachers’ questions

Exploration and evaluation

Exploration and Evaluation

  • In groups of 2, explore one of the “samples of technology for math” marked by a STAR and rate the site (online survey).

  • Explore any of the other sites

  • After 45 minutes, we’ll regroup and debrief


Debrief hopes and concerns

Debrief: hopes and concerns


A few closing thoughts

A few closing thoughts…

The mere existence of these tools in the classroom provides no guarantee that student learning will improve; they have to be part of a coherent education approach…

…not just rich sources of information, but also extensions of human capabilities and contexts for social interaction supporting learning.
