Technology can help students learn mathematics if they receive training on how to use the strategic tools to enhance their learning (NCTM, 2014).
Today students receive a briefing and overview of two applications that will be added to their chrome browser. The first application is called SplashTop Classroom which allows myself as the teacher to display the projector screen and my desktop down to 40 devices in the classroom.
The second application will facilitate mathematical discussions using the Mirroring360 application. It limits only four students to display their screens at one time and that is sufficient for the current instructional methodology planned for this cohort classroom teaching common core mathematics.
Students will take their assessments using common core based interactive and intelligent software throughout the school year. The focus this year is upon standards based grading, close reading of complex texts, COLOSO self-directed learning, formative assessments, review, intervention, and feedback.
