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.

It turns out calculator training is mandatory in the UK.

Many excellent internet references were offered during the chat:
