Technology in Mathematics Education: Preparing Teachers for the Future
Powers, Robert; Blubaugh, William
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v5 n3-4 p254-270 2005
The preparation of preservice teachers to use technology is one of the most critical issues facing teacher education programs. In response to the growing need for technological literacy, the University of Northern Colorado created a second methods course, Tools and Technology of Secondary Mathematics. The goals of the course include (a) providing students with the opportunity to learn specific technological resources in mathematical contexts, (b) focusing student attention on how and when to use technology appropriately in mathematics classrooms, and (c) giving opportunities for students to apply their knowledge of technology and its uses in the teaching and learning of mathematics. Three example activities are presented to illustrate these instructional goals of the course.
