Abstract

This article demonstrates how multiple features of a computer spreadsheet extended motivational activities with M&Ms and enhanced mathematical thinking of younger children in the context of data analysis and probability. Technology-enabled childhood pedagogy described in this article was implemented by two elementary preteachers who, by working as apprentices to their graduate professor, developed a high appreciation of the pedagogy and acted as agents of change in a P.D.S. setting.
