Presentation Description

Nevil will present an interactive overview of the current capabilities and benefits from using handheld technology in the teaching of Mathematics to all abilities of 11-18 year olds. Using a wireless network of TI-Nspire handhelds (including some which have Computer Algebra Systems) he has identified several new classroom dynamics and learning experiences that regularly help students drive both themselves and their learning forwards. There are even implications for when teaching Maths without technology.
All delegates are welcome, regardless of their previous experience of using handheld technology in their lessons.
