To keep the Reform Symposium learning and inspiration going I decided to do a 27 days of professional development series. Day 1 was my Keynote about how a blog post and a Twitter conversation started a school. Today is Multimedia and Interactivity in Mathematics by David Wees.
In this session, David examined the role of multimedia and interactivity in mathematics education. I love the way that David looked at how photography can make such an impact (particularly for visual learners) in the math classroom. Capturing math in the world around us can help students view math differently. Toward the end of the session I asked David if he had created a Flickr group for math photos…working on twisting his arm to start that one for all of us.
This was a fantastic session!! During the session, David mentioned Math Pickle. Math Pickle is such a great math website that I’m going to do a second review post just for it.
