  3. 3. Instead of drawing 20 different diagrams on a chalkboard by hand, teachers can create one diagram on a computer González says and manipulate it using thetheres no need for them to throw dynamic geometry software. away the Without the software. protractors andcompasses just yet.
  4. 4. During the project, the team found that 45% of students who usedNumber Net increased in the number of unique mathematical expressionsthey created after using Number Net, compared to 16% of students in thetraditional paper-based activity.

  18. 18. Student Response system Students are empowered to take control of their own progress — they can gain insight into areas where they need help and seek it out.Students who are reluctant to speak in class can respond to teachers questions in anonymity. Teachers can do real-time assessments of students’collective and individual comprehension of a lesson and use that information to adjust the lesson plan or provide personalized instruction
  19. 19. 6.Barriers of use of Technology Not enough or limited access to computer hardware & computer software Lack of time in school schedule for projects involving ICT Lack of knowledge about ways to integrate ICT to enhance curriculum ƒ Not enough teacher training opportunities for ICT projects Lack of adequate technical support for ICT projects
