Tech Talk Tuesdays: Using technology to engage students in mathematics
When: Tuesday, August 9th 4 to 5pm Melbourne Australia time (gmt+10)
About the session: Learn how edmodo, wikis and web tools are used to engage students from years 5 to 9. Meet Penny Bentley, our presenter, who has been experimenting with the use of web 2.0 tools in maths and numeracy to engage students and improve learning outcomes. Penny will explain how she uses games for skills practice, audioboo and an ipad app ShowMe for kids to talk about/reflect on what they are doing. Penny has created a wiki for each of her private tutorial students where they embed their work. Her use of Edmodo will also be shared.
Please join us, bring along your favourite tools/resources to share and join in the conversations.
