Computer generated fractals, lines, and designs. Technology in the classroom can be used to spark student potential to reaching higher levels of mathematics.
Technology in the Classroom
The Following Case studies inspired me to flip my classroom and showed me how to transform the learning experiences of my students. I thought, that it looked like fun and "I had to try it!"
Case Study #1- Using technology in collaborative groups/peer tutoring
Case Study #2- Using technology to differentiate instruction and personalize learning.
Case Study 3
I taught HS Geometry College Prep last year. I would have loved to try this with them. Luckily at my middle school, Geometer sketchpad activities are included in our online textbook.
My students were also engaged and they were able to see the pattern and deepen their learning with a visually conceptual understanding that would not otherwise been possible without the use of technology. Math to me is beautiful patterns found in our universe and nature. It's beauty surrounds us and is the only universal language that is vitally important.
This fueled my passion for my driving question to find other technology that would increase my students' engagement and performance. I needed technology that would transform their learning experience. I wanted performance results that could be measured and repeated.
