Transcript of Technology in the Math Classroom

Technology should not replace teaching or learning, rather . . . Technology should be a tool that enhances learning. Why use technology with math? 5. Students have the opportunity to explore and interact with multiple mathematical representations. Example: manipulatives 6. Students can explore relationships between mathematical concepts. Example: fractions and decimals 3. Students can problem-solving across content areas.
Students can receive immediate feedback
Instructional levels can be adjusted
Students extend learning beyond the classroom 1. Technology encourages interactivity. Virtual manipulatives can be easily transformed. Graphing devices can enable students to see how changing just one point changes an entire line. 2. Technology can promote effective communication about learning. Students blog with one another. Document cameras and other visual supports encourage students to prove their thinking. 4. Sometimes technology helps logistically.

How will students be held accountable?

Is there a purpose for using the technology? http://inroadswomen.blogspot.com/2009/05/womens-ministry-name.html Resources:
