This hands-on workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to test out some free mathematics focused iPad apps and web based tools and reflect on how these tools can be used in their classrooms. We will explore how technology can be used to engage students, capture student learning and support the new mathematics curriculum.
The session will provide an overview of the principles of Universal Design for Learning and iPad app demonstration in the morning and a maker session in the afternoon. Participants will create activities that will be ready to use immediately.
All participants will require a device (and access to the iPad apps using their Apple ID). A few devices will be provided with the following apps: Educreations, ShowMe, iMathematics and Desmos Graphing calculator.
