Using Dynamic Geometry Software GeoGebra in Developing Countries: A Case Study of Impressions of Mathematics Teachers in Nepal
Mainali, Bhesh Raj; Key, Mary Beth
International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, Apr 2012
This article describes a professional development initiative for fifteen mathematics teachers in the use of dynamic geometry software GeoGebra. A four-day introductory workshop was given in Nepal to provide an overview of GeoGebra and its possible integration in the teaching/learning of secondary school mathematics there. Teachers' impressions and beliefs concerning both the training and the software were researched in the context of applicability in Nepalese schools. The potential for using GeoGebra to teach and learn mathematics in Nepal is very large, as evidenced by the participants' impressions and enthusiasm about, and willingness to use, dynamic geometry software, despite many constraints and difficulties associated with accessing advanced technology. (Contains 4 figures and 6 footnotes.)
