Implementation of Technology in Secondary Classrooms
The implementation of technology is a major trend pushing across the nation. As schools struggle to keep up with this new trend, teachers are being asked to use new technologies purchased by school districts in their everyday classrooms. Learning how current classroom teachers are meeting these demands while enriching students' education is something that I find particularly interesting. There are so many different technologies floating around schools such as on- to-one devices, learning management systems, and mathematical open source software to name a few. I hope to hear how teachers from across the country are using these various technologies in their classrooms to differentiate learning and enhance student understandings. I aim to learn more about technologies that I am unfamiliar with while also learning how to use technology to create community in the classroom. Hearing from fellow math educators will help me to become a more educated and informed teacher as I prepare to enter into my own classroom.
