Welcome Sticky

Feb

My goal for this website is to show the importance of changing our pedagogical practices to better serve 21st century students. Learners being educated in the 21st century not only want to be taught differently; they need and are demanding it. For many years, education in the United States has been focused on a more teacher-centered model of educating youth. Now, we have the obligation to shift our teaching styles to more student-centered models and practices. Over time, this shift will drive stronger and more effective learning both within the classroom, and out.

If you've been checking the website periodically, you might have noticed I haven't been keeping it truly up to date lately. Sorry about that! Over the summer I'll be catching up on keeping this site up to date and current. Be sure to be on the look out for it!

Also note: I'm headed to San Antonio for the ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) conference in July, so the best time to watch for updates will be shortly after that in the beginning of July! Hope to connect with you if you're going to ISTE!

47th Annual AMTNYS Summer Workshop

Hopefully the AMTNYS Summer Workshop at Siena was as exciting and useful for everyone attendance as it was for me. It was a great three days of ideas, ideas, and more ideas. I believe summer conferences really demonstrate just what outstanding educators exist; those who are willing to give up three days of beautiful summer weather to remain indoors.

Dynamic Geometry in the Mathematics Classroom

May
26

Dynamic Geometry not only makes a classroom more exciting and engaging, but also provides students with an outlet for discovery learning. Students who manipulate and work directly with concepts are much more likely to remember them, and be able to apply important meaning to them. Geometer's Sketchpad is a useful tool to make abstractions concrete, at any level.

Students today learn very differently. In their everyday lives they are surrounded by technology. More importantly, when they enter the workforce, they will be expected to know how to use technology and be comfortable with it. Integrating free web tools into the mathematics classroom can both aid in engaging students in their own learning, while also providing useful skills they will need in their futures.
