The Use of Tablet and Related Technologies in Mathematics Teaching
Australian Senior Mathematics Journal Volume 24, Number 1, ISSN 0819-4564
According to "Standards of Excellence in Teaching Mathematics in Australian Schools," excellent teachers of mathematics need to create "an environment that maximises students' learning opportunities"; so that they can encourage self-directed learning, "model mathematical thinking and reasoning," and provide "purposeful and timely feedback." In the last ten years new technologies have provided teachers of both school and university mathematics with more opportunities to approach such excellence. The Tablet PC and associated technologies together provide one such opportunity. A Tablet PC is a laptop computer, equipped with a touch-screen and a stylus to enable the user to write on or manipulate the screen. This paper details some of the ways Tablet PCs and related technologies have been used to foster good teaching and effective learning for students in the early years of university study independent of whether they are in large groups, small groups, in individual consultation situations, in classes or remote from a teacher in distance learning situations. It will focus on the teaching of one-to-many, one-to-few and one-to-one, addressing "stuck places" and online synchronous teaching drawing from investigations and research conducted by the authors since 2004.
