I am currently taking a math methods class here at Concordia
College in Moorhead, MN. We have talked considerably about how
technology should and is used in the classroom. With the incredible
amount of sources available to teachers and students to use in
classrooms, how can a teacher decide how to use those sources
effectively?
Another question I pose to this group is: At what point do you
use "machines" to do the work for you and your students? I have heard
a horror story about how a college student does not know his/her
multiplication table. One of the main reasons comes from the fact that
the teachers in his/her elementary school used calculators. This example
was to clarify my question at the start.
Any student in my methods class reading this might think I am
beating a dead horse, but I think the more opinions I can receive, the
more information I have to use when I start teaching.
Thank you for any responses to these questions.
