Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School Vol. 16, No. 1 (August 2010) pp. 50–55
"I liked to grab things on the graphics and see it first hand, see what we were doing on the problem. It makes more sense." These words were from a student who completed a series of lessons on lines of best fit. She made this comment after comparing ...
Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School Vol. 16, No. 6 (February 2011) pp. 362–367
A common activity--having students collect data to measure the radius and circumference of circular objects--can be given a new twist. These data can be viewed virtually using technology. A dynamic geometry environment coupled with the powerful...
Computers & Education Vol. 115, No. 1 (December 2017) pp. 201–210
Although parents are active in social media the use of social media as a collaborative tool for parental learning about play is yet to be fully realised. Models for parental education including those that use social media, predominantly use top-down,...
Mathematics Teacher Vol. 109, No. 7 (2016) pp. 500–506
The article opens with a Geoboard Triangle Quest in this form: "How many noncongruent triangles can be constructed on a 4 × 4 geoboard? How do you know? Justify your answer with significant supporting work." The use of advanced digital...
School Science and Mathematics Vol. 111, No. 5 (May 2011) pp. 209–224
In this technology-oriented age, teachers face daily decisions regarding the use of advanced digital technologies--graphing calculators, dynamic geometry software, blogs, wikis, podcasts and the like--to enhance student mathematical understanding in ...
Mathematics Educator Vol. 19, No. 2 (2010) pp. 10–20
There is a dearth of research on the mechanisms for preservice teachers' development of the pedagogical knowledge necessary for effective use of such technologies. We explored the emergent Technological Pedagogical and Content Knowledge (TPACK) ...
Mathematics Teacher Vol. 107, No. 3 (October 2013) pp. 180–187
In a recent collaboration with an area high school teacher, the authors were asked to develop an introductory sinusoidal curves lesson for a group of second-year algebra students. Because the topic was abstract and unfamiliar to these tenth graders, ...
Early Child Development and Care Vol. 183, No. 2 (2013) pp. 280–293
In today's fast food, fast-paced consumer society, too few questions are asked about the influence of digital media on young children's health and sustainability choices, and indeed how such choices are expressed in children's play (and early...
Behaviour & Information Technology Vol. 28, No. 3 (May 2009) pp. 269–279
Expert operative information is a prerequisite for any form of surgical training. However, the shortening of working hours has reduced surgical training time and learning opportunities. As a potential solution to this problem, multimedia programs...
A Middleware Platform for Providing Mobile and Embedded Computing Instruction to Software Engineering Students
IEEE Transactions on Education Vol. 55, No. 3 (August 2012) pp. 425–435
As embedded software systems have grown in number, complexity, and importance in the modern world, a corresponding need to teach computer science students how to effectively engineer such systems has arisen. Embedded software systems, such as those...
