1 Trends and Issues in ICT By Larey

2 Focus of Today.. Teaching and learning Secondary School Mathematics with current and future Information and Communication Technologies

3 Background ‘ There are a wide range of technologies available for the teaching and learning of mathematics. In particular, there is an increasing array of electronic technologies -- devices and software -- from which teachers can choose. Excellent teachers of mathematics plan the use of technologies in their work based on their assessment of their suitability and effectiveness in relation to the mathematics being learnt’ AAMT Standards for Excellence in Teaching Mathematics in Australian Schools : 2006AAMT Standards for Excellence in Teaching Mathematics in Australian Schools : 2006

4 ICT and Mathematics Teaching Journal Article Website Podcast Video Key Issues and Trends Implications for Teaching

5 Journal Article Teacher perspectives on integrating ICT into subject teaching: commitment, constraints, caution, and change: Sara Hennessy; Kenneth Ruthven; Sue Brindley –UK Investigation into the integration of ICT into English, Maths and Science classrooms –Identifies Issues with ICT Integration

6 Journal Article Key Points –Commitment –Constraints –Caution –Change

7 Journal Article Strengths –Comprehensive study conducted by experienced researchers –Very relevant –Informative findings –Wide research base

8 Journal Article Weaknesses –UK study –The study is 5 years old and the advancements in ICT are very rapid

9 Website: nrich.maths.org Key Points –Initiative of the University of Cambridge –Run by experienced Teachers for use by Teachers and Students –Offers Rich Mathematical Activities

10 Website: nrich.maths.org

11 NRICH Articles

12 NRICH Problem of the Week

13 NRICH Search by Topic

14 Website: nrich.maths.org Strengths –Run by a team of qualified teachers for students aged 5-19 –Offer tasks that develop mathematical thinking –Free material for use by Teachers –Excellent resources: Articles, Games, Problems

15 Website: nrich.maths.org Weaknesses –UK site, linking to the UK National Curriculum –Graphics quality –Lesson Plans will be helpful

16 Podcast: TI-Nspire Key Points –WW: Share and learn about classroom technology –This episode: The TI-Nspire calculator –TI-Nspire Desktop Software –What you create can be saved –Wireless version in beta testing phase

17 Podcast: TI-Nspire

18 Strengths –Presented by an in-service teacher –Practical ideas of how to use the TI-Nspire in the classroom to enhance Teaching and Learning –Provides up-to-date information

19 Podcast: TI-Nspire Weaknesses –Provides only high-level information, not detailed instructions on how to set up an investigation or study card –Information on the computer and handheld screens not always clear

20 Video: The Sine Rule Maths- The Sine Rule when Finding a Side - Key Stage 4 Key Points –A step-by-step explanation of the Sine Rule –Illustrate the concept by going through 3 examples of the application of the Sine Rule

21 Video: The Sine Rule

22 Strengths –Clear step-by-step instructions –Sound quality excellent –Very easy to understand –Visual picture very clear –Colourful presentation

23 Video: The Sine Rule Weaknesses –Lacks a real life example of the application of the Sine Rule –Suggestion: Add an authentic example

24 ICT and Mathematics Teaching Key Issues –ICT Professional Development for Teachers –Teacher Commitment to change –Support from School Leaders and the School Community –Pedagogic and Curriculum Change required

25 ICT and Mathematics Teaching Key Trends –Web-based Learning Interactive learning, Instant feedback –Graphic Calculators Develops conceptual understanding, Investigations, Study Cards –Instructional Videos Access from home

26 Implications for Teaching Have an open mind Pedagogic change required Curriculum change required Use ICT to enhance learning and to engage with learners Encourage high-order thinking through exploration of mathematical concepts

27 Suggestions Start small and build it up Use videos in the classroom to explain certain concepts and put them into context Make use of websites like nrich.maths.org to engage learners and encourage high-order thinkingnrich.maths.org Encourage students to access Instructional videos and Podcasts on the Web

28 More Suggestions Use Graphic Calculators technology to set tasks for students to explore mathematical concepts Only use technology when it will enhance learning Set investigation tasks for students utilising websites like nrich.maths.orgnrich.maths.org ICT Professional Development for Teachers

29 Finally.. “Technology: opening minds with a new set of keys.” Author unknown
