ICT for Maths

Wed 2nd Dec 2009 : 9:00-12:15
TECHNOLOGY supporting MATHEMATICS Teaching and Learning

This workshop is specifically designed for Mathematics teachers of students age 8 to 19.
We will cover several generic web 2.0 applications that are designed to help you find Maths resources and share those resources with other Maths teachers and your students.
We will look at some Maths specific websites and applications with time being allocated for you to try some of these 'hands-on'.
We will be joined online by a USA Maths educator who has a specific expertese in "MathsCasting" with students ... and he will explain and demonstrate how this is done.
With this subject-specific workshop it is also hoped that participants will share their own experiences of using technology to support the teaching of Mathematics.
If you have time before the workshop then have a browse around

Note (if you plan to attend both the Maths and Science sessions) that there will be some overlap with the generic web 2.0 applications shown between the Maths and Science workshops.

Hi, my name is Chye Fook. My concern is whilst using technology connects IT savvy youngsters to us, I am not really convinced that this will translate into better mathematical thinking and results from the students. It will be wonderful if you can share some concrete evidence that this is in fact true.

Hi, this is Yunhui (or Faith), in my twenties, teaching A-level Math. I don't wish to sound as though I'm copying Chye Fook, but it is very true that often the level at which IT resources are being tapped on by educators, is still on 'connecting' rather than a higher level of constructing activities that allow exploratory learning. And that includes myself, which explains why I've to sign up for ICT @_@ Cheers.
