Comparing Communication Patterns within a Hybrid Professional Development Mathematics Course for Elementary Teachers
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2008 (Mar 03, 2008) pp. 4407–4412
Although online and hybrid models for instruction are gaining popularity in college courses, they are still very rarely seen in professional development programs for practicing teachers. The aim of this research is to evaluate the degree to which...
Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association 1997 (March 1997)
This paper examines students' mathematics learning in a social context as two versions of an instructional sequence designed to facilitate students' development of a conceptual foundation for place-value numeration are enacted in two third grade...
Three Perspectives in Research on Functions: Multi-Representational, Quantitative, and Phenomenological
Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association 2000 (April 2000)
Much research on student understanding of functions has been characterized by a "multi-representational" perspective that investigates students' efforts to make connections among conventionally accepted mathematical representations such as graphs,...
Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia Vol. 12, No. 2 (2003) pp. 135–161
This article describes issues related to the design and research of a multimedia case study for prospective mathematics teachers. In the design section, we discuss three questions to consider when creating a multimedia case, and explore how various...
An Analysis of Prospective Teachers' Dual Roles in Understanding the Mathematics of Change: Eliciting Growth with Technology
Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education Vol. 4, No. 2 (2001) pp. 115–37
Analyzes the interrelations between prospective and practicing teachers' learning of the mathematics of change and the development of their emerging understanding of effective mathematics teaching. Develops novel computer-based activities to...
Using Technology to Explore Mathematical Relationships: A Framework for Orienting Mathematics Courses for Prospective Teachers
Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education Vol. 14, No. 4 (August 2011) pp. 285–304
The technological revolution that has finally permeated K-12 education has direct implications for modern teacher educators whose "Hippocratic oath" is to best prepare future teachers for twenty-first-century classrooms. The goal of this article is...
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching Vol. 31, No. 3 (July 2012) pp. 213–248
Online video sharing websites have had a profound impact on the ways that students learn about the world, about the culture, and about mathematics. However, we would like to challenge McLuhan’s assertion that changing the media has necessarily...
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology Vol. 42, No. 4 (2011) pp. 481–495
Designing didactic objects involves imagining how students can conceive of specific mathematical topics and then imagining what types of classroom discussions could support these mental constructions. This study investigated whether it was possible...

DESIGNING MULTIMEDIA CASE STUDIES FOR PRESERVICE TEACHERS: PEDAGOGICAL QUESTIONS AND TECHNOLOGICAL DESIGN SOLUTIONS
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2000 (2000) pp. 1889–1893
This paper discusses some of the pedagogical questions and technological solutions that evolved as we developed three multimedia case studies for preservice teachers. The design goal of this project was to create a means for helping preservice...
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2012 (Mar 05, 2012) pp. 1317–1325
This report describes prospective teachers’ interpretations of the mathematical practices described in the Common Core State Standards. Thirty-five prospective middle school teachers used Xtranormal, an online video scripting program, to create and ...
Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School Vol. 6, No. 2 (2000) pp. 92–98
Uses SimCalc MathWorlds, which is downloaded from the World Wide Web, to engage students in algebraic problem-solving activities. Uses software to animate characters by creating graphs of position and velocity. (YDS)
Journal of Technology and Teacher Education Vol. 19, No. 1 (January 2011) pp. 45–72
This report describes reflections from two cycles of developmental research that involved creating and refining a series of computer-based applets for reasoning about the relative magnitude of fractional quantities. The applet sequence stemmed from...
