Description

Professor Nigel Calder

Using mobile technologies in the teaching and learning of mathematics

Mobile technologies are everywhere in our lives. We use them to communicate, research, process, record experiences, and for entertainment. They influence the way we interact in the world, the way we live. We use them in work and play. How might they change the teaching and learning process? This presentation explores the ways that using digital technologies have the potential to change teaching and learning in mathematics – with both student engagement and mathematical thinking. A particular focus will be the affordances of mobile technologies and how these interact within socio-material assemblages.

Prof Nigel Calder, University of Waikato

Dr Nigel Calder is an Associate Professor at the University of Waikato. He has extensive teaching experience while his research interests predominantly relate to using digital technologies in mathematics education. His present and recent research projects are: The influence of apps on primary-school mathematics teaching and learning; The influence of mobile technologies on the engagement of 16-18 year-old reluctant learners; Connecting science and mathematics through exploratory talk and inquiry; and How mathematical thinking emerges through student-centred inquiry learning in secondary schools. He wrote the book: Processing Mathematics through Digital Technologies: The Primary Years and co-edited MERJ and T&C special issues, and a Springer Book, on learning through mobile technologies.
