Before we can understand the
future of math teaching, we
need to experience a bit of a
paradigm shift.
Do you think you
know what reading
looks like?
Go watch a Spritz demo.
Just because we’re
used to it, this does not
mean it is “the way.”
Text on paper is
just a technology.
Features of Text
- ability to review
- one-to-many
- asynchronous
- can be translated
- cheaper than lecture
Lecture is just a
technology.
Features of Lecture
- one-to-many
- synchronous
- Q&A
- child care
Learning that involves information transfer
will be replaced by technology.
Any repetitive assessment or
learning task that can be replaced by
a computer will be.
Will teachers
be replaced by
technology?
The “teacher replacement” view is
a look at the world through
Silicon-Valley tinted glasses…
Or maybe it’s the
Lake Wobegon of Silicon Valley…
Where all the learners are motivated,
everyone has Internet, and the onl...
Killer Features of Teachers
- creative
- flexible
- motivating
- coaching
- synchronous
- Q&A
- child care
Many math teachers say that what
they do in the classroom cannot be
mimicked by technology. They say the
classroom is high...

The classroom is highly interactive for

Killer Feature of Tutor

Some students already know it.
Get them to the next topic quickly.
For students who don’t have initial knowledge,
each one may take a different path. That’s fine.
Other students take a circuitous route.
That’s okay too.
The only technology that will improve
learning outcomes for the majority of
students in math is that the technology

So, Math Teaching in 2020 …
(1) Learning math becomes a team
activity, where technology is one of the
team members.

Adaptive experience
Instant feedback
Competency tracking
Exploration spaces

(2) Teachers shift
from the role of an
instructor to the role
of a learning coach.
Good coaches
Communicating
Questioning
Challenging
Accountability
Encouraging
Showing new perspectives
Monitoring
(3) We solve the
mobile devices and
assessment problem.
(4) Students can move
seamlessly between
in-person and digital
experiences.
Seamless transitions
Absences
Sports conflicts
Extra help
Summer programs
Interventions
Online students
Help for parents
(5) Teacher planning
periods shift from
lesson planning to
examining analytics and
choosing digital / in-
person learning

computer should be.”

No matter how good the software,
learners will still need the the coach,

Stop wasting time doing
things that a computer
(or robot) can do better.
Now we take
some questions.

With every new iteration of technology, we create generations of students whose primary media "language" for learning and interacting with the world is different than the generation before it. In the last five years, technologies like online homework, free online videos, personalized learning software, mobile devices, learning analytics, high-quality digital math games, computational knowledge engines have been chipping away at the corners of education and traditional teaching. Technology-enhanced learning is here to stay and it will alter the face of education, like it or not. This is a guide to navigating and thriving in this new world.

  • Can more easily backtrack
    Does not require both parties to be present
    One-to-many sharing

  • Advantage: 1-to-many transfer, synchronous
    Disadvantage: Individualization is difficult, backtracking is difficult, re-experience is difficult
  • 2-Sigma:
  • 2-Sigma: Bloom found that the average student tutored one-to-one using mastery learning techniques performed two standard deviations better than students who learn via conventional instructional methods.
