Dr. Gerrit Stols, Fulbright Scholar at the University of Great Falls, from the University of Pretoria, Department of Science, Mathematics, and Technology Education, will give the following talk as part of the MSU Mathematics Education Seminar in the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
Teaching and Learning of Mathematics Using Technology: Opportunities and Pitfalls
In this talk, I will reflect on the use of technology for teaching and learning of mathematics. The use of technology creates new opportunities, but if used incorrectly, can impede students’ conceptual development. I will therefore reflect on the importance and limitations of technology use. Lastly I will focus on the question: Why do teachers and lecturers use or not use technology in their classrooms?
