Agenda:

August 8:30-9:15

Getting Started – We will be spending time with the big ideas, research, and principles and standards to support the effective use of technology in math. Much of the time will be hands on – computers, manipulatives, and calculators. The goal is to provide you with the tools and resources you need to develop a lesson and to locate lessons you may use in your classroom the incorporate best practices of technology within the curriculum.

Vision for Technology and Math:
Technology is essential in teaching and learning mathematics; it influences the mathematics that is taught and enhances students’ learning. You can use technology in many ways in math:

Emphasize real-world math and problem-solving strategies:

Accumulation of real-world strategies/techniques.

Strive for a minimum of 45 minutes per day of math instruction at the elementary levels

Increase use of calculators for problem-solving in the elementary classrooms

Okay, so now you have the big ideas and the importance of using the technology in math. Now, the big question is how to do this so that technology is used appropriately.

Think about how you might use one or two of the ideas shared in this event to reinvent or create a lesson that integrates technology into your math class. Your task on August 16 will be to create a lesson that integrates the use of technology in the math classroom.
