Shin, Dongjo; Smith, Ryan C.; Kim, Somin – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2018
Use a framework to evaluate a tool: Is it mathematically sound? Does it offer opportunities for student engagement with little distraction? Will it afford students the chance to develop their own ideas? This article provides a framework that teachers can use to evaluate technological tools. The authors evaluate two examples that are designed to…
