Math 2.0 Interest Group 08 12 2009 Meeting Chat Only

About the event

  • Will you be the Average Participant in this session Today? You won't have a chance unless you attend. Ihor will be sharing an activity that will take advantage of "crowdsourcing" to demonstrate what he refers to as an inside-out way of learning powerful math ideas. Also, we will discuss the building of a library of good math 2.0 activities.
  • Maria will discuss an article that our group got (preliminarily) accepted for a special issue of In Education Online, and again will invite people to contribute.

Wednesday, August 12th we will meet in the LearnCentral public Elluminate room at 6pm Pacific / 9pm Eastern time:
You can come some half an hour earlier to test the mike, doodle on the white board and otherwise play.

Hosts: Ihor Charischak, Maria Droujkova

This event is a part of the ongoing Math 2.0 interest group conversation series. Always-discussed topics:
  • principles of Math 2.0 teaching and learning
  • networks and communities creating social math objects
  • platforms for remote communication of this interest group
  • our projects and collaboration
  • publishing efforts and bibliography


Ihor Charischak

Ihor_mmi2.jpg A career mathematics educator Ihor recently retired from Stevens Institute of Technology still continues to pursue his passion of firing up teachers imaginations about how learning and teaching math with technology can be interesting, useful and empowering. Ihor has been leading projects dealing with technology applications in mathematics education at the Center for Innovation Engineering & Science Education (CIESE) at Stevens since 1990. He has more than 35 years experience as a classroom teacher and teacher educator. He is the founder of the Council for Technology in Mathematics Education (CLIME), an affiliate of National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), and has been active member on their technology committees. He has participated on the Editorial Panel for the NCTM 2005 Yearbook on technology and mathematics. He most recently managed a professional development project in Elizabeth, NJ where he worked with eleven middle schools to help strengthen teacher content knowledge and pedagogy as well as help them to align their textbook lessons with more engaging, technology based activities and projects.
