The purpose of this symposium is to share the various ways that asynchronous online tools such as wiki’s, blogs, and online video are being used specifically in mathematics education to promote shared learning experiences and collaborative intellectual product development. The goals of the learning communities we will share include development of teacher analysis of student mathematical understandings and teacher development of curriculum. The projects presented span the context of undergraduate, graduate, and practitioner mathematics education. As a group, we plan to share what we have learned through integrating these technology tools both as practitioners using these tools to facilitate our students’ learning and as mathematics education researchers.
