The types of technology that are available to secondary students for free or at low cost can allow students to experience mathematics in new ways and ask questions that would not be salient otherwise.
This one-day workshop helps math teachers to think deeply about the benefits of using technology to facilitate the development of deep mathematical understanding of complex ideas at the secondary level. When used at the appropriate time with the appropriate content, their purpose moves beyond a motivating tool, a reward system, or a means to entertain the “fast” kids.
When used well, technology can engage learners in tasks that are high in cognitive demand and allow for students to engage in rich problem-solving opportunities that would be too complex or abstract without the visualization tools and complex computation afforded by specific technological tools.
