|Dr Brian Brooks. ICT is great for maths teaching. But only as good as the lesson that it's embedded in. ICT techniques on their own may be fun, but they won't help if they don't support or enrich a lesson idea that is already strong on its own. So my training is focussed on making the ICT resource to fit the lesson. Instead of saying "Hey, this is what I can do with Cabri", I say " Is Cabri the tool that will help me bring this lesson idea to life?" If the answer is yes, then I find a way to make Cabri do what I want. Technique follows idea, not the other way around. Cabri II Plus is my favourite. But I'll also use Excel, Autograph, Derive, FXdraw, and anything else that comes to hand. Even Powerpoint has its place. I teach maths at Millfield School. Sometimes I use plenty of ICT. Sometimes not. Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.|
