There are hundreds of technology products looking to support your students’ math learning. But what are your values and beliefs about math and how well do those products align? In this workshop, participants will learn together why students may dislike math. Together, they will experience a math classroom that is connected andcreative. Participants will discover how to choose free technology that develops those classrooms, making technology a tool that teachers use rather than the reverse.

  • Participants in this workshop will:

    ● learn why many students dislike math.

    ● experience several forms of math education technology from the perspective of a student, using a curated tour of tools that may help or hinder classroom teachers’ highest ideals.

    ● reflect on their highest ideals for their classes and convert them into a rubric to help them evaluate those technologies.

    ● learn about technology and its role in a) engaging students, b) giving feedback, c) connecting the class as a social unit.
