The AMTE Tech Talk Blog (click here) is a space for members to share success stories of technology integration so we can learn how different tools are being effectively used in our work with teachers and students.
Content of blog posts includes: descriptions and uses of mathematical technologies, tools that allow teachers to communicate and reflect on their work, social media spaces where teachers and teacher educators discuss their work, and engaging technology-based activities that we have used with pre-service and in-service mathematics teachers.
Blog posts are authored by AMTE members and provide examples of the ways we are engaging students and teachers in using technology. A few examples are as follows:
- Approximating the Practice of Teaching in Mursion’s Simulated Classrooms - Dawn Woods introduces us to how simulated classrooms approximate the practice of teaching.
- Use of a Question Formulation Technique (QFT) to Engage Students in Mathematical Inquiry - John Somers shares a way to engage in mathematical inquiry via Zoom.
- CODAP: A Data Analysis Platform for Doing and Teaching Data Analysis - Stephanie Casey and Rick Hudson share a data analysis tool to support preservice teachers in becoming proficient with using technology tools and supporting students’ learning of mathematics.
So, do you have an engaging technology resource? Please consider writing a brief AMTE Tech Talk Blog. Posts are typically around 500 words and are curated by the AMTE Technology Committee. We’d love to hear your success stories!
