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 <br /> Does not require both parties to be present <br /> One-to-many sharing <br /> <br />
  • Advantage: 1-to-many transfer, synchronous <br /> 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.

  • What does teaching math look like in 2020? Maria H. Andersen, Ph.D. Director of Learning & Innovation Area9 Labs [a guide for K-12 educators]

  • 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 only thing standing between a student and their success is affordable access.
  • 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 highly interactive and engaging for all the students. But what does the research say?
  • Math classroom mapping research from Vilma Mesa, University of Michigan Warning: These will haunt you.
  • The classroom is highly interactive for the teacher and engaging for all the about 3 students.
  • Killer Feature of Tutor = Teacher but one-to-one
  • Bloom 2-sigma Study (1985) The average student tutored one-to-one using mastery learning techniques performed two standard deviations better than students who learn via conventional instructional methods.
  • For any topic, there’s a field of potential questions, identification of misconceptions, and learning assets that a tutor could provide.
  • 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 that begins to mimic a tutor-student relationship.
  • So, Math Teaching in 2020 …
  • (1) Learning math becomes a team activity, where technology is one of the team members.
  • Good math technology Adaptive experience Instant feedback Competency tracking Exploration spaces Provide scaffolding Alternate learning paths
  • (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 activities.
  • “Anyone that can be replaced by a computer should be.” - Arthur C. Clarke
  • No matter how good the software, learners will still need the the coach, because we/they are human. It is the connection with a learning community that keeps most of us moving forward in education.
  • Stop wasting time doing things that a computer (or robot) can do better.
  • Now we take some questions. Contact info: maria@area9.dk busynessgirl@gmail.com Twitter: @busynessgirl busynessgirl.com Illustrations by Mat Moore.
