Ontario Ministry Connects Technology and Math Curriculum


math wordle

Recently I received a copy of Ministry of Education Newsletter   Math in Motion   and I was really impressed with the connection that is being made to improve student Math skills at both elementary and secondary levels through the use of web based technologies.

Shared in the article for teachers use is Edugains.ca website that is designed for students who need additional support in math.  It uses diagnostics to uncover typical problems students have on a specific topic and then suggests instructional strategies to specifically target these deficits in learning.  Various modules can be accessed through this site.

Also highlighted is the Homework Help page for students Grade 7 to 12.  A free online math help resources for students of Ontario Grade 7 -10.  It provides live one-to-one from Ontario teachers Sunday to Thursday from 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm.  The program is funded by the Ontario government and administered by TVO’s Independent Learning Centre

    I came across your blog post while searching up information on technology integration on Google.
    I am completing a research thesis for my Masters of Teaching program and I am specifically focusing on the integration of technology into mathematics to help alleviate math anxiety in elementary age students.
    Do you have any experience integrating technology in mathematics at the elementary school level, or know of any educators who are strong at implementing it? If so, I hope to get into contact with you to discuss further. Thanks!
