Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The purpose of this session is for presenters to participate in creating products that will support their teaching of mathematics. Teachers will have choice and autonomy to review a list of current and popular webtools such as Shadow Puppet, Glogster, Zaption, Seesaw, Blogger, Popplet, Educreation. Examples will be provided for each webtool and include demonstrate by student presenters. Teachers will hear best practices for instructional design and be provided with a useful template for designing instruction based on SAMR model and TPACK. Success in this session will be evaluated by peer feedback on participants products as measured by google forms for feedback.


This session will feature two students who have utilized webtools to explain their thinking about mathematics.

The session will include students projects that demonstrate the Mathematics Practice Standards across core mathematics strands.

Participants will have an opportunity to demonstrate their understanding by creating a product they will share with the group that represents a mathematics concept

The first thirty minutes of this session will share examples by students and the second half of the session will give participants an opportunity to create products and share their ideas collaboratively.
