Students have been organised into small groups and challenged to investigate graphing different quadratic functions. You will notice that there are a lot of phones out, but this is not students misbehaving! Students are using a graphing software to drive their enquiry. While the students work in groups, the teacher monitors and offers guidance and support.
This is an urban, public school. Watch out for how the teacher:
- Challenges students to recreate graphs on a mobile application
- Organises space for struggle and hard thinking
- Monitors the room during students’ enquiry
How do you encourage students to use technology in your own classroom?
