In this blog post, we (1) describe the technological tool of interactive whiteboards, (2) summarize how interactive whiteboards can be used to teach mathematics in ways aligned with research, (3) overview the top free interactive whiteboard platforms available in Sept. 2021, and (4) explain how we have used digital whiteboards in our work with mathematics teachers and students.

When the COVID-19 pandemic struck in 2020, most, if not all of us, turned to technology as the primary avenue to prepare our teachers. We used Google folders and documents and lots of Zoom and TEAMs. At Florida International University (FIU), it heightened our awareness that well-prepared beginning teachers of mathematics should be ”proficient with tools and technology designed to support mathematical reasoning and sense making, both in doing mathematics themselves and in supporting student learning of mathematics” (AMTE, 2017, p. 11).

In line with the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educator’s (2017) Standards for Preparing Teachers of Mathematics, a primary goal of most mathematics methods courses is to support pre-service teachers (PSTs) in developing instructional practices that research indicates can support students’ mathematical learning.

At AMTE 2021, we presented a session in which we shared our findings on why and how particular socio-technological features support professionalizing shifts in teacher discourse during virtual PD.  Professionalizing discourse (Horn & Kane, 2019) stands in contrast to normalizing discourse (Horn & Little, 2010;

Reflecting on Teaching Practice, Mathematical Practice Standards, and Equity

Basil Conway IV, Associate Professor of Mathematics Education in the College of Education and Health Professions at Columbus State University

Over the last 6 years working as a mathematics teacher educator, I've taken some time collecting valuable resources to be better at my practice.

Welcome to the AMTE Tech Talk Blog!  The purpose of the blog is to provide a space for us, the members of AMTE, to share our success stories of technology integration in a variety of environments to see how the different tools are being used and the positive outcomes that resulted in our work with preservice and inservice teachers.
