I recently gave a talk on current digital technology that can enhance the teaching and learning of
mathematics. The
title of the talk was "Isn't It Great to Be Alive" which is a reference to an email I received in
2000 in which the author made this statement in reference to how graphics calculators were
transforming the teaching of senior Mathematics at that time. I feel the same about the digital
technology available today.

I used an IWB (a Promethean ActivBoard) with the talk and have put the accompanying flipchart into
the Public folder in my Dropbox. I also uploaded a .pdf version for those that don't have the
ActivInspire. It has all the pages but is missing the wonderful interactivity,

I also gave a talk on My All-Time Favourite Middle School Maths Activities. The flipchart, pdf and
associated documents from this talk are also available from my Dropbox.

You can find all of these resources at

The 'Isn't It a Great Time to Be Alive' flipchart is also available from the Promethean Planet
resources at

Feel free to access the resources and to share the above links.

If anyone knows of digital resources that should be included in the flipchart, please let me know.

Finally, feedback is always welcome!
