Learning Intentions and Success Criteria[Show/Hide]

Learning intentions

increase knowledge of existing GeoGebra resources targeting grades 6-diploma algebra and geometry concepts

increase knowledge of GeoGebra capabilities

increase knowledge of possibilities for delivering GeoGebra content

Success criteria

describe at least one GeoGebra applet applicable for use for mathematics learning and teaching in both:

a wiki discussion post with information on your best find (include topic/content target, direct link, and a brief reflection on the possibilities and drawbacks of the resource)

a 2-minute workshop presentation

Introduction to using Technology for Mathematics Learning and Teaching[Show/Hide]

Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (NCTM):

"Technology is essential in teaching and learning mathematics; it influences the mathematics that is taught and enhances studentâ€™s learning."

Activity: 4-part Jigsaw[Show/Hide]

In small research groups, quickly look up (3 minutes) and prepare a brief presentation (1 minute or less) to summarize for other participants the core meaning or message of the topic. Each member of each group will present as part of a new "discussion group" that is composed of one member from each "research group."

Topic 1 - Open Educational Resources (OER) (GeoGebra is OER)

Screencast explanation by R. Puentendura (Hippasus; 19 minutes - scroll ahead to Part 1: A Model for Technology and Transformation, and scroll as needed based on the slides to hear introductions to the levels)

Possible Benefits of Technology Use for Mathematics Learning and Teaching:[Show/Hide]

(this list is meant to be illustrative and not exhaustive)

Access

can increase access: to knowledge and help; for parents (e.g. to course information); to and for community members; to students in other schools; to experts; to simulations; to supercomputers; to technology labs; and more

Accessibility

better access to resources for more students, including through digital formatting, audio and video resources

Assessment

enhanced and rapid assessment possibilities, including for short-cycle formative assessment, alternative modalities, audio and video capture, and artifact access and preservation

Representations/Models

can represent and extend models beyond the physically or practically possible

Interactive/Dynamic

can increase engagement and initiate feedback cycle

Connections

multiple simultaneous interconnected representations or models are possible

Speed

rapidity of computation and iterative procedures; allows for rapid concept testing

Accuracy

lessens opportunities for misconceptions

Feedback

can be immediate, individualized, content-based

Personalization

can tailor learning for specific individuals

Collaboration

can enhance and extend possible methods for collaboration

Productivity

can increase efficiency of creation of products and resources by teachers and students
