Digital Tools in the Math Classroom

Texthelp-Appsevents-Webinar-Series-July-2018-social-assets-blog


As a Google Certified Trainer, I get to visit schools and work with teachers to integrate G Suite for Education, Google’s set of collaborative cloud-based tools. I got into this line of work thanks to a Gmail account I set up in 2011 to get lesson feedback from my classes via a Google form. These were my math classes, having taught the subject from 2004 to 2017. My use of digital tools in math came from wanting to move from the practice to the application more efficiently.

Why Stop with G Suite and Microsoft Word? Type Math in PDFs Too!

Math teachers have a lot of worksheets that they’ve compiled over the years. Most are probably handouts that they photocopy year-over-year. Some may have been scanned and converted into PDFs, delivered digitally to students for them to print out or handwrite responses to on a separate piece of paper.

EquatIO Mobile: Digital Math in the Palm of your Hand

Equatio-mathspace-blog


In past blog posts, we’ve discussed the value of technology in math & STEM classrooms. Most notably, technology supports multiple means of representation and expression, it encourages group collaboration, and it provides students with rapid sharing and teacher feedback.

Despite these benefits, I’m sure we can all think of instances where more traditional forms of education still come in handy. For example, there may be some problems that students prefer to solve on a scratch piece of paper. Or, maybe as a teacher, you still find the whiteboard to be the easiest way to present your math or STEM lesson to the entire class.

We want to help you and your students merge these two forms of learning together so that you can experience the benefits of technology no matter what form the math comes in. That’s why we created EquatIO Mobile.

With all the latest assistive technology today, the World Wide Web is becoming increasingly accessible for all users. Particularly when it comes to individuals with visual impairments or learning disabilities like dyslexia or dyscalculia, there are a handful of resources available for them to use to have the text read aloud, including built-in tools like Browsealoud and universal screen readers like Read&Write.

When it comes to math, however, there are added challenges to accessibility.
