These are maps of traditional math classrooms of community college math instructors who have been identified as excellent instructors. Two things to notice:
1. Almost all the interaction is instructor-to-student (not student-to-student).
2. There are many students in every classroom that are never involved in an interaction.

  • Actually, these are completely non-technology classrooms. The researcher who does the mapping is Vilma Mesa. I use these to point out how little interaction there is for most students in a traditional math classroom. Almost no student-to-student interaction, and most instructor-to-student interaction involves about 3 students.

  • It looks like you have fewer questions when you incorporate technology. Have I misunderstood that? looks like the most questions come with blackboard use. Thank you for sharing this. Who mapped the classroom dynamics if you don't mind my asking?
