Redefining the Math Classroom: The Transformational Power of Technology

A session at BIT15 - Bring IT,Together 2015

Friday 6th November, 2015

11:00am to 11:50am (EST)

Mathematics can be a challenging subject for both students and teachers. Traditional methods of pencil and paper instruction often perpetuates the frustration that exists in the math classroom.

For over 10 years Joyce Public School has used technology to modify and redefine teaching and learning. Our students love mathematics and consistently score high on standardized testing in Ontario.

See how technology is redefining students' ability to communicate, collaborate, represent and learn from one another in a one-to-one math classroom. Learn about tools that facilitate teachers’ ability to differentiate instruction and reach students of all levels. This session will highlight the dynamic use of on-line math games, virtual manipulatives, math websites (e.g. UMathX), multimedia, authentic data from the internet, OneNote, and Google Apps for Education for teaching and learning. Bring your laptop so you can actively participate in what a 21st century classroom might look like.
