Course Description

 

The focus of this course will be on the use of technology in teaching and learning mathematics in grades PreK-5.   We shall review the National Educational Technology Standards for Students (NETS) as they apply to the teaching and learning of elementary school mathematics and also study the Technology Principle of the NCTM Principles and Standards 2000.   Both of these documents provide guidance for the appropriate use of technology as a tool for learning and teaching.
