Constructing Geometry on the World Wide Web

A Materials Development Institute for Leading High School Geometry Teachers

This is to announce an invitational program for teachers of geometry who
are experienced in telecomunications and the use of computers in the
classroom. The small and select group of participants will be introduced to
the latest tools and projects on the Internet and become involved in
developing resources which enhance its usefulness and accessibility for
schools and math classrooms. The conference will be held July 8-15, 1995,
at Swarthmore College, Swarthmore, PA.

This is the third summer of the highly regarded conferences hosted by The
Geometry Forum, an electronic mathematics community which enables teachers
(and students) to exchange ideas, conduct student projects, find and create
online resources, and access geometers and math educators internationally.
These introductory programs have been very successful in both introducing
the Internet to math educators and in modeling and exploring the pedagogy
involved in the use of the Internet in education--so successful that we are
unable to meet the demand for them. While we are conducting a few such
introductory programs for others this summer, our own institute will
concentrate on cutting edge exploration of advanced tools and uses,
hopefully paving the way for new users to come.

The goal for the week is to create materials and projects which take
advantage of the World Wide Web and other multi-media, hypertextual
technologies that support user-constructed environments and integrate the
many resources of the Internet in order to extend current curricula,
classroom projects, and professional development opportunities.

A limited number of travel stipends will be available. Room, board, and
other conference costs will be covered by the Forum. Participating teachers
will receive needed software and ongoing support for their related Internet
activities.

The Geometry Forum is funded by the National Science Foundation.

Individuals interested in participating in the conference should submit an
application as soon as possible. An electronic copy of the application and
more information about the Geometry Forum can be found at
http://forum.swarthmore.edu/. More information can be obtained from the
Geometry Forum at 800-756-7823 or annie@forum.swarthmore.edu. The size of
the conference will be limited to 8-12 participants.
