ICT in Mathematics Networking Session

Date: 08 March 2018

What are some key considerations when using ICT to teach Mathematics?

  1. time
  2. Suggested tool provided for the topic
  3. syllabus
  4. Logging in
  5. Hardware
  6. Ample functioning laptops. Slow n weak Key typing skills Many steps to accessing the correct page.
  7. Do the students want to use ICT?
  8. ICT baseline vs Bytes score not match. Need high Bytes scores but baseline is low.
  9. Time
  10. Suitability of apps/tools and how they help in the teaching and learning of topics
  11. 1) Suitability for students (students not familiar with computer/keyboard) 2) Ease of implementation 3) Device required for students or only one device such as Plickers? 4) Internet connection necessary or self-contained within an app 5) Time constraints (Is there a steep learning curve for students?)
  12. 1) internet connectivity 2) time taken for students to log in
  13. Must be friendly
  14. Login
  15. School network
  16. Preparation time
  17. Time needed for set up. Time needed to log in.
  18. Ease of use
  19. Time taken to use the tool in class
  20. WiFi support in classroom.
  21. Network connection problem
  22. Pedagogy must be considered before the technology to be used
  23. How easy is it deliver instructions for students to use
  24. Interactive
  25. User-friendly
  26. Time constraints. Limitation in school wifi, limited computer labs
  27. Usefulness of ICT in students' learning
  28. Objectives of lesson
  29. Not enough devices
  30. Free, easy to login or no login necessary, simple and clear interface
  31. Natural fit. Fuss free.
  32. Time factor - can be time consuming
  33. 1) Easy to use 2) Allows collaborative learning and inquiry based learning
  34. Effectiveness of lesson
  35. Time constraint
  36. Lost connection in the middle of a Kahoot game. Pupils log in issues.
  37. Time
  38. Padlock

How might we better support you in using ICT to teach Mathematics?

  1. Conducting more of such sharing by upper & lower Primary so that you can share more apps by level by topic.
  2. Separate sessions for pri and sec schs
  3. Have a table to summarize all applets according to topics n levels
  4. Lesson plans
  5. Free resources
  6. Hands-on sessions on the use of online manipulatives shared by Lawrence
  7. Keeping us updated of the newest release
  8. More support
  9. More actual hands on, no need for vendor talk. They should go directly to the Sch to promote. No use when HOD is not around.
  10. Address the concerns. We typed them down but it was not answered.
  11. Time
  12. Selection of appropriate ICT tools for different topics (topic specific)
  13. More hands-on with math examples
  14. Free ipads
  15. Free resouces
  16. Online "how-to" videos
  17. Would be good to hold separate sessions for primary and secondary schools
  18. Aligning possible tools to specific lesson objectives & level
  19. Implementation
  20. Share some good practises from other schools.
  21. Provide more hands-on ICT session on the tools
  22. Resources from existing lessons that have been carried out in class will be good
  23. Suggestion of suitable platforms to use for various topics if possible.
  24. hardware
  25. Do sharing in school.
  26. May be good to have sample lessons related to specific topics using ict
  27. Demo of apps for teachers.

Share with us one ICT-enabled practice that you will be trying out in 2018.

  1. Self-directed learning
  2. Active learning
  3. Enhance learning
  4. Plickers
  5. Desmos
  6. The use of online platform (mconline or padlet etc) for pupils to engage in discussion
  7. Kahoot and spiral
  8. Kahoot
  9. Use of ICT tools such as kahoots and spiral to conduct factual fluency during lessons.
  10. Using Nearpod to engage students and as an AfL tool. - Draw it function / polls / quiz
  11. using excel to assist students in solving cryptarithms
  12. Flippity
  13. Padlet for collaborative learning.
  14. Group work: Creation of word problems using newspapers advertisements and post on padlet. Students give comments on the question and give positive reinforcement. Solve another group question.
