Digital technologies to support teaching and learning in mathematics

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Participants will:
• See some practical examples of digital technologies and find out about their use in mathematics classrooms.
• Think about how the teaching and learning in their own classroom or school can be enhanced through the effective use of digital technologies.

We will share the findings of a research project with data from over several hundred mathematics classrooms, demonstrate some examples of cross-curricular digital activities and draw some lessons for effective use of digital technologies.

This session draws on research from the mathematics classroom but will draw wider lessons on the effective use of digital technologies that may be of interest to school leaders and teachers of other subjects.

She is a visiting senior fellow at the Institute of Education, University College London. Her research interest is in the use of digital technologies to improve teaching and learning in mathematics classrooms. She continually asks questions and through her inquisitiveness she has widened her research interest to issues of underdevelopment and particularly the role of small-scale commercial agriculture in improving people’s lives through increasing the rural economy. She has undertaken field work with farmers in Mozambique and Zimbabwe, and is co-author of three... Read More →
