>*Announcement*
>The Council for Logo & Technology in Mathematics Education (better known as
>CLIME) will be holding its 9th annual meeting during the Boston/NCTM.
>
>Time: Thursday, April 6th, 4:30-6:30 PM
>Place: Sheraton Gardner Room (A & B)
>
>CLIME's mission is to support and faciliate the effective use of technology
>in mathematics education. It is the only technology oriented affiliate
>group of NCTM.
>
>The agenda for the meeting includes :
>
>***Presentations***
>*John Olive (U. of Georgia) - The use of the Internet in the Math Classroom
>*Chris Hancock (TERC) - Data analysis with the new dynamic database program
> "Tabletop"
>*Ihor Charischak (Stevens Institute of Technology) - The use of
>spreadsheets in prealgebra and algebra
>
>***Two Video classroom vignettes***
>*Robert Berkman (Bank Street School, New York, NY) leads his 7th grade
>class in exploring random events with Logo Software and spreadsheets (His
>lesson was recently discussed in an issue of "Mathematics Teaching in the
>Middle School". Jan.-Mar. 1995)
>*Toby Caplin (Graham & Parks School, Cambridge MA) uses an inquiry learning
>strategy with her 6th graders to explore the area of triangles with the
>software program - Geometry Inventor.
>
>***Discussion***
>*Affiliate group matters, election of officers and CLIME's future direction.
>*Also on the table is to discuss what role CLIME might play in influencing
>NCTM in regards to the Internet revolution. Interestingly, out of 1062
>sessions at the Boston meeting only 6 deal directly with the use of the
>Internet. It seems that this topic warrents more discussion.
>
>*A historical footnote*
>Back in 1992 CLIME proposed a resolution to NCTM to establish an advisory
>committee on technology issues in mathematics education. Though the
>proposal was almost unanimously approved by the delegate assembly, no such
>committee was established. Rather a task force was created (on which I was
>a member) to look into what needed to be done. The upshot was an update of
>NCTM position papers on technology. It might be time again to push on NCTM
>to pay closer attention to the impact of the information superhighway on
>mathematics education. Your input on this matter will be appreciated.
>
>I hope you can make this meeting!
