Abstract

Technologies can be used to generate a variety of types of representations (visuals, text, sound, numbers, graphs, and so on.) that convey mathematics and science content, including at nano-scale levels and in otherwise dangerous or “invisible” systems. By generating multiple representations with technology teachers cannot only extend the learning environment, but ease students’ cognitive load so they may focus on more complex aspects of content or tasks. Teachers can also link representations together to create learning environments through which students are asked to identify connections among them and thereby construct deep conceptual understanding of this content.
