Abstract

Schools have been slow to leverage the new literacies associated with the technologic culture that today's students inhabit. 21st century learners, as these students are called, are now more participatory, collaborative, and connected in the ways they interact with the world. Mathematics classroom fall far behind in understanding how a participatory culture can enhance mathematics learning and draw on students’ participatory dispositions to enhance classroom teaching. The area of mathematics literacies, a knowledge of math that allows students to participate in mathematical practices that are important in the wider society, is concerned with pushing toward greater engagement with these participatory values. This session will examine how cultural relevance can be used to develop math literacies in urban school teachers by considering how teachers can leverage the 21st century student's participatory, collaborative, and connected ways of interacting with the world.
