Making Technology Work
Soucie, Tanja; Radovic, Nikol; Svedrec, Renata
Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, v15 n8 p466-471 Apr 2010
Students need to learn how to use technology in a meaningful way to become literate. Teachers should take advantage of technology and what it has to offer. Technology can motivate students and can help them visualize mathematics problems. It can enable them to work on more complex tasks that often involve real-life applications of mathematics. It also allows them to move from mere reproduction to exploration and discovery. Students are able to work on more in-depth problems and produce higher-quality work. Learning becomes fun for them. However, to fully take advantage of what technology offers, implementing its use in the classroom has to be thoughtful and well planned. This article illustrates how embracing technology in the authors' classrooms transformed not only the way they teach math but also how they assess mathematics. (Contains 4 figures.)
