Patahuddin, Sitti Maesuri; Logan, Tracy
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA) (38th, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia, 2015)
This study investigates the potential of Facebook as a medium and process for teachers' learning about mathematical and pedagogical knowledge. Participants' (N = 117) responses towards four inter-related posts regarding division-of-fractions were captured and systematically analysed to gain insight about the participants' engagement. The results suggested the potential of Facebook to support informal teachers' learning. This was evidenced by the existence of the three main elements of community of practice (CoP): mutual engagement; negotiated joint enterprise; and development of a shared repertoire.
