Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The participants will be able to incorporate the free digital tools of GeoGebra (and completely open educational resources and activities) to promote student centered discovery based learning in their lessons that are accessible to all students equitably and independently of their learning environment. They will have the opportunity to share and model their lessons for group members as each will be able to play the role of student and teacher. Success will be determined when each participant is able to select, customize, and share resources with their group.

Outline

As participants enter the room, a slide with a link to a GeoGebra interactive classroom lesson will be projected so they can join the lesson through their personal devices.

For the first 5 minutes as attendees get settled and join the digital lesson, we will point out some of the features of the lesson and describe how it is OER adapted from existing resources that the attendees will also be able to set up.

For the next 15 minutes we will walk through how to navigate an interactive OER curriculum and create shareable versions of each lesson. We will prompt the participants to collaborate with the people around them to answer each other's questions before moving on.

With another 15 minutes, attendees will learn how they can customize a lesson to fit the needs of their classrooms, through adapting and combining existing resources. They can also practice sharing links with one another.

For the next 10 minutes, we will also present a collaborative whiteboard resource and allow users to explore the features to insert many types of media through a digital format. The participants will experience how they can use this resource to group students to collaborate with one another and monitor their work.

During the last 10 minutes we will allow participants to discuss with the people around them how they could apply the skills they learning in their own classrooms. Then we will ask for volunteers to share with the whole room.

The extra 5 minutes of the 60 minute presentation will be a buffer for extra questions or explanation throughout.
