Reach & Teach all Learners with Technology Infused Math Instruction

This week I had the opportunity to present and engage fellow educators at the California Association of Resource and Special Educators (CARS) conference in Irvine California.  The focus of the presentation was "how to infuse technology into your practice to support all students in developing both conceptual understanding and procedural fluency in mathematics".   We also discussed how using technology can create an optimal learning environment for students especially those with learning differences.  An emphasis on how technology can be used in 5 key pedagogical practices: Project-based Learning, Problem-Based Learning, Daily Routines, Open-Ended Tasks, and Math Centers was discussed and explored with examples across the K-8 grade span.  Many of these big ideas are discussed in my book "Teaching Outside the Box: Technology Infused Math Instruction"    

The second presentation was focused on skills developed in grades 4-8. Highlighting the Big 5 and building upon developing students confidence and efficacy in math with oral presentations, justifying their answers, and collaborative problem solving.
