Geometric Thinking; January 24th

What did you learn?

One of the things I’ve been thinking about off and on lately is one of the questions asked in class: “What is technology?”  I’ve also been watching some videos lately about the connections between art and mathematics that are really blossoming in origami lately.  Putting these two things together, I am beginning to be very curious about using more art and science in the classroom as ways of implementing “technology.”

What questions do you still have?

I am wondering if technology might not be defined as anything not typically used in a classroom that can be used to further learning.

How can it apply to classroom practice?

I am not sure yet.  So far I’ve begun by showing two of the most interesting videos to my students.  I’d like to move beyond that and start creating more art- and science-based tasks for my students, but I don’t feel like I know enough yet to do that.  So I need to learn more.
