Year 7 Students Helping Mathematics Teachers Change the Way They Teach

Students from Year 7 presented to about 200 mathematics teachers on Thursday December 4th at Latrobe University. Their presentation “lesson” was part of a KEYNOTE address given by Sue Ferguson, (from The Learning Federation), at the Annual Conference of the Mathematics Association of Victoria. Using an interactive whiteboard students demonstrated effective use of digital learning objects that are now available to Australian teachers. The question that remains is whether the students demonstration will encourage maths teachers to utilise the wonderful digital learning objects now available? Certainly the teachers who were listening to these students seemed to be convinced! So Mathematics teachers, it’s now over to you! Well done Brooke, Daniel, Michaela, Paul and Jessica for your inspirational presentation!
