As an Instructional Technology Specialist, I am always looking for ways to help teachers of all subject areas integrate technology, which is why I was so excited to attend Alice Keeler’s Teaching Math with Google Apps workshop in Plano, TX in March. Math is the area I usually find the most resistance when it comes to using technology. With resources like Photomath, Khan Academy and Wolfram Alpha, we need to stop the busy work and create learning environments at the Transformation levels of SAMR.
If you ever have the chance to attend an Alice Keeler workshop, I highly recommend it! Her passion for teaching and learning is highly contagious! After attending the workshop and reading her new book, Teaching Math with Google Apps Volume 1, I couldn’t wait to talk with the math teachers in my district.
With Alice’s permission, I have created a slide deck of some of my favorite activities from both her workshop and her book to share with my teachers and with you!
