Week 7: 5
I attended the Mathchat, Monday 8/23 @ 3:30p EST
Subject: Technology in the Classroom
Moderator asked a couple of questions: What are your favorite uses of technology and what is indispensible?
The answers were: the pc/lap top, the internet, projection equipment, and Interactive white board.
