Raising Confidence with Technology in the GCSE classroom
The National Curriculum states "Calculators should not be used as a substitute for good written and mental arithmetic. In secondary schools, teachers should use their judgment about when ICT tools should be used." However, the appropriate use of technology can aid students' understanding of mathematics. The AMSP are running a series of courses for teachers entitled "Raising Confidence with Technology in the GCSE classroom" The aims of the course are:
To raise teachers confidence in using technology to support students in learning GCSE Mathematics.
To provide strategies and resources for teachers to use in classrooms.
To support teachers in supporting their departments in using technology appropriately.
Raising Confidence with Technology aims to develop the technology skills of secondary teachers. These skills are transferrable across all aspects of maths teaching, but the content mostly focuses on Higher Tier GCSE topics.
