Using ICT To Support Interactive Teaching and Learning on a Secondary Mathematics PGCE Course
Australian Association for Research in Education Annual Meeting,
During the academic years 1998-1999 and 1999-2000, an Open and Distance Learning version of the full time Mathematics PGCE course was developed and trialled at the University of Wales Swansea. This was a part of a larger collaborative project (Hyfforddi Athrawaon Teacher Training--HATT 2000) between the constituent colleges of the University of Wales which aimed to use the affordances of ICT to improve the teaching of Mathematics, Modern Foreign Languages, and Educational and Professional Studies within the PGCE program and to widen access to teacher training in Wales. The project made use of First Class conferencing e-mail, Web based bulletin boards and streaming video to provide an alternative to some elements of the usual college-based elements of the course. This paper focuses on the changes in the learning discourse within PGCE mathematics arising from the affordances of the technology. (Contains 33 references.) (Author/ASK)
