  • Teaching Math in the classroom
  • Why Use Technology in the Classroom?Technology, when used appropriately, can help make classroom a site of active learning and critical thinking, furthering student inquiry and connections with the materials. Teachers can use technology to enable students to explore fundamental curriculum issues and answer core questions. Students can use the Internet, electronic databases, applets and other online sources to gather information. They can use spreadsheets, virtual labs, and other programs to store, organize, and analyze information. Students can also integrate multimedia desktop publishing, web publishing, video and audio editing, as well as graphics programs to create and present information in innovative and engaging ways.

  • To develop these skills, we need classrooms where students are working in teams and using technology to build creative, meaningful content that reflects their understanding and learning. In these environments, teachers act often as facilitators and mentors rather than always fonts of authoritative knowledge. These classrooms are dramatically different from the ones where our most current teachers grew up, apprenticed, and taught. As a result, helping teachers effectively use new technology to support innovative, student-centered, inquiry-based learning will involve leveraging these emerging technologies.

    • 4. Why Use Technology in theClassroom?Students can also integrate multimedia desktoppublishing, web publishing, video and audio editing,as well as graphics programs to create and present information in innovative and engaging ways.
    • 5. Why Use Technology in Teaching inthe Classroom?Researchers like Howard Gardner (2006),Tony Wagner (2008), Henry Jenkins (2007),Frank Levy and Richard Murnane (2004), and othersbelieve that technology is needed for students in thefuture---digital age literacy.
    • 6. Why Use Technology in Teaching inthe Classroom?To develop these skills, we need classrooms wherestudents are working in teams and using technology tobuild creative, meaningful content that reflects theirunderstanding and learning.
    • 7. Why Use Technology in Teaching inthe Classroom?In these environments, teachers act often as facilitatorsand mentors rather than always fonts of authoritativeknowledge.These classrooms are dramatically different from theones where our most current teachers grew up,apprenticed, and taught.
    • 8. Why Use Technology in Teaching inthe Classroom?As a result, helping teachers effectively use newtechnology to support innovative, student-centered,inquiry-based learning will involve leveraging these emerging technologies.
    • 9. Why Use Technology in Teaching inthe Classroom?Change is made by people - but people are moreeffective when they have well-engineered tools thatsuit their purposes.
    • 10. Why Use Technology in TeachingMath?Foundations for Success was a report produced underUS Department of Education.This report says that the National MathematicsAdvisory Panel recommended technology to freshenup a tired curriculum, noting that "technology-baseddrill and practice and tutorials can improve studentperformance in specific areas of mathematics.http://www2.ed.gov/about/bdscomm/list/mathpanel/report/final-report.pdf
    • 11. Why Use Technology in TeachingMath?The report also said student achievement is higher inclasses that use instructional software than in those thatdo not.And the report cited studies that show teachingcomputer programming to students can support thedevelopment of particular mathematical concepts,applications, and problem-solving skills.
