Teaching Technology: Creating Environments for Change. Technical Report No. 45
REPORT

Abstract

Based on observation, interviews, and questionnaires, the first section of this paper discusses lessons learned while watching teachers use the first set of "The Voyage of the Mini" materials (a video, computer, and print package). The focus is on the need to create an environment that will support an inquiry-based curriculum. The second section describes the design of one of the software modules, Maya Math, to address this need. A segment of the module is explained, and ways in which the materials have been designed to facilitate the discovery of specific math concepts are illustrated. Experiences of a teacher currently field testing the module are then presented. (7 references) (MES)
