Transcript

  • 1. Using Technology to Facilitate Instruction in Mathematics Janette Ramirez
  • 2. Educational Leader Roles
    • Educational leaders ensure that curricular design, instructional strategies, and learning environments integrate appropriate technologies to maximize learning and teaching.
      • Facilitate the use of technologies to support and enhance instructional methods that develop higher-level thinking, decision-making, and problem solving skills.
      • Provide for and ensure that faculty and staff take advantage of quality professional development learning opportunities for improved learning and teaching with technology.
    Technology Standards for School Administrators: Standard II
  • 3. Professional Development
    • FOCUS: conceptual and instructional issues
    • Regular follow-ups
  • 4. Teacher Roles
    • Receive professional development
    • Integrate wide range of activities that engage students in self-regulated learning to facilitate thinking by using technological tools
    • Use technology that is relevant to the math topic and to the students
  • 5.
    • “ Teachers who learn to use technology while exploring relevant mathematics topics are more likely to see its potential benefits and use it in their subsequent teaching.”
    • - Garofalo, Stohl, Harper, Timmerman, & Shockey
  • 6. Research Studies
    • Computer algebra system (CAS) and self-regulation learning (SRL)
    • SimCalc computer program and curriculum in diverse classrooms
  • 7. CAS and SRL
    • Two Groups of Instruction:
      • CAS and SRL
      • CAS only
    • Results:
      • CAS and SRL in mathematic instruction outperformed students in algebraic thinking and regulated their learning more effectively that students who received only instruction by CAS
  • 8. Self-regulation Learning
    • “ Having the ability to develop metacognitive knowledge, attitudes, and control behaviors which enhance and facilitate learning.”
    • - Kramarski & Hirch, 2003
  • 9. SimCalc
    • Two Groups of Instruction (Note: The study was held in Dallas/Fort Worth Region and Rio Grande Valley Region):
      • SimCalc curriculum and mateirals
      • Best instruction available
    • Results:
      • Students that received instruction with SimCalc had an improvement on test scores in both regions
  • 10. Effectiveness of Technology
    • Teachers who used the SimCalc approach received training in the implementation of the curriculum.
    • Teachers successfully used materials which showed gain in student learning despite variation in gender, ethnicity, poverty and prior achievement .
  • 11. Effectiveness of Technology
    • “ Teachers’ effective use of technology to enhance their students’ learning opportunities in mathematics classrooms depends on the didactic possibilities linked with its use.”
    • - Kramarski & Hirch, 2003
