Learning Maths with Technology Using both Offline and Online Free Resources


Using technology for Maths will engage and excite your learners. Bringing technology into your teaching will allow all of your students to gain confidence in modern communication, problem solving, and STEM thinking. Even if you don’t think you have the internet, bandwidth, or the devices; hours of individual and group learning can occur through self-paced work as well as through classroom instruction as you will experience in this workshop. The Rachel project from WorldPossible has designed a server that works offline in an initiative to make available rich and curated educational content to serve learning where internet connectivity is inconsistent or doesn’t exist. In addition to this valuable offline strategy with resources far beyond Maths, the new Khan Academy Lite is now Kolibri and you will see how wonderful it is for your learners. Many more resources will be shared in this rich and robust Maths workshop!
