Join us to learn about Math Snacks: Early Algebra! These two new video games and one interactive tool have been developed by researchers from NMSU, with National Science Foundation Funding, to support the foundational skills which students needed to succeed in Algebra. Early algebra is an emerging term in math education research (Lins & Kaput, 2004) focused on the introduction of algebraic thinking in the elementary grades.

This session will allow you to play with the new games, as we believe that gameplay allows the teacher to become the facilitator of learning, incorporating various strategies to guide learners. We'll also explore the role technology has taken in education, providing both teachers and students with more options and flexibility in their teaching and learning practices, and discuss how teachers can use technology resources to provide opportunities for learning and create the "conditions that optimize learning" (Jonassen, Howland, Moore & Marra, 2003).

BOYD: Please bring a laptop, tablet or iPad with you to this session.
This session is being offered twice; please only sign up for one of the two sessions.
