" teach them how to use tools appropriately. keep them busy with projects. Use curated materials (such as Discovery ed and iCurio). You need not fear!<br /><br />"She did, though, describe cheating with the internet as learning collaboration. She says that it's not really cheating but instead just sharing your learning experiences with others. I'm not sure how this applies to math. I'm not sure how any of this applies to math." Why is math any different from anything else. If the goal is to solve problems (rather than to put down the correct answer), there are many ways to determine abilities in cooperative environments!<br /><br />Alice Wise, also a hopeful math teacher, raised similar issues. This is how I responded to her: "What do you hope your students will learn to do? to know? to have experienced? How do excellent practitioners of math use technology in their professional lives? How can teachers provide experiences that help achieve the goals of math teachers while replicating the real world experiences math specialists will encounter? I am certain they will not practice their professions without using technology - lots of it!" So you can wrestle with my questions yourself.<br /><br />John Hadley Strangehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/17484977903995419205noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-390061621116025865.post-14904252125305538682013-04-09T11:41:02.529-05:002013-04-09T11:41:02.529-05:00Good Job Roanna!

I almost wish I could start over so all these technological issues I've been having wouldn't be happening.
