Evaluating the Math Forum
When you do go to the Reserve desk, tell them that you are in section 003 of HNRS 200. The chapter is called: Community Building with and for Teachers at the Math Forum. It's from the Book Building Virtual Communities.
There is no writing assignment required, but here are some questions to consider while reading:
- Based on the Math Forum research, what impact has the Internet had on teachers' learning and professional development?
- What role does the concept of community play in this personal development?
- What is the relationship between knowledge building and identity in this online environment? What do Renninger and Shumar mean by imagination in this process?
- How does research of this kind provide a form of evaluation for a large project like the Math Forum?
