This course will explore the use of appropriate technology (Geogebra and Excel) to enhance the teaching and learning of mathematics in the secondary classroom. The emphasis is on teaching for transformational learning and in creating student-centred activities rather than using technology simply as a demonstration tool.
No prior knowledge of Geogebra or Excel is required but the course is also suited to those who may have had some prior exposure to these applications.
Participants will need to bring a laptop and charger with the latest desktop version of Geogebra installed as well as Microsoft Excel.
It is intended to give participants the tools and confidence to meet the ‘using appropriate technology’ outcomes of the new Stage 6 syllabuses as well as the capability to use Geogebra and Excel in student-centred experiential learning in Stages 4 and 5.
The extended break between the first and second day of this course will allow participants to trial tasks in their classes and to feedback to the group on successes and challenges they faced. The second day will also be an opportunity to share ideas, lesson plans and resources and to delve into more complex functionality of the applications.
