Abstract

Using a tablet PC in a mathematics methods course for prospective elementary teachers, the author implemented a variety of interactive conversations about mathematical thinking, teaching, learning, and assessment. Prospective teachers who worked individually with students during the course displayed the work products to foster discussions about pedagogy, instruction, assessment, and student thinking. Prospective teachers analyzed the student work and discussed both oral and written feedback that could support student growth. The ability to display and manipulate the work of students in the elementary school where this course was offered created meaningful dialogue and growth for prospective elementary teachers enrolled in this course.
