PBL Cycle 2 Day 1 Technology for teaching & technology for learning secondary school mathematics.
A new PBL cycle. This one is four days in length � and a bit more open-ended. Everyone knows about some technology � some great pieces, some popular pieces� the first PBL discussion of what we know and what we don�t know illuminated we know lots of cool technology for doing math in some way, but maybe we can�t quite articulate what�s its learning purpose is, or its teaching purpose, especially in the context of the curriculum we are to teach. A very interesting group discussion clarifying terms, defining the problem, and analyzing which circled back into clarifying terms and revisiting/revising the problem!
First on the list of action items for self-study: what technology DOES the curriculum say for specific expectations and outcomes? Second on the list: what are �mathematical processes� and how are they related to technology!?
