Integrate Technology with Student Success
Wolf, Drew; Lindeman, Patrick; Wolf, Trent; Dunnerstick, Robert
Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, v16 n9 p556-560 May 2011
As information technology continues to progress, teaching mathematic with multimedia is becoming a new way of instruction. Integrating technology enables students to become more active in the learning process. When students feel more vested in actual learning, retention of the material tends to rise significantly. This article describes how tools such as interactive whiteboards, personal computers, and document cameras can help keep students' interest high and vary the way the lesson is delivered. Technology will be more important than ever for the next generation of students. Their ability to gain functional arithmetic and technology skills could determine their level of success in the real world. If students are exposed to challenging, exciting new tasks that embrace technology, educators can encourage them to meet expectations. Educators must do their best to learn new cutting-edge delivery methods and procedures to give students maximum opportunities.
