Technology Overview

What is the Technology stack?

There are important features and uses of technology that can be capitalized upon in mathematics classrooms to support students' mathematical learning. Features include thinking about the purpose of technology: to perform mathematical actions or convey information; uses of technology that can amplify one's mathematical work or can change the way one thinks about particular mathematical ideas; and features such as direct manipulation and multiple representations that enable students to engage in mathematical reasoning and sense-making.

In the Technology stack you will have the opportunity to develop and demonstrate three competencies.

Identifying Types of Tools for Mathematics (.25 CEUs)
To earn this micro-credential, you will classify technology tools and describe how each type of technology can be used to support students' mathematical learning.

Using Tools to Enhance Mathematics Learning (.25 CEUs)
To earn this micro-credential, you will classify technology tools using the constructs of amplifier and reorganizer to describe how each type of use can support students' mathematical learning.

Capitalizing on Features of Mathematics Technology (.25 CEUs)
To earn this micro-credential, you will describe how the use of technology-based multiple representations and direct manipulation can support students' mathematical learning.
