One of the the most powerful drivers of technology adoption is the ability empower learners to develop lifelong learning skills and pursue their interests for learning. How do we achieve this within a well-defined framework created by schools. What does learning look like in schools who promote personalization of learning? What are your drivers of technology adoption in your school or classroom and are they a fit for personalization?

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand and apply a working definition of personalized learning
  • Apply a variety of criteria and concepts of including Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to analyze the ability of technology tools to meet the needs of our diverse learners 
  • Identify areas of need in our own teaching and learning and reflect on how our favorite technologies do or do not foster PL.

It is strongly believed that technology embedded learning is the future of education. Technology in the classroom and as an aid in the teaching learning process is currently the primary focus of all educator’s discussion, forums, articles, periodicals and research. A demonstration on how technology can be used to enhance visualisation and support student understanding of mathematical concepts using TI-Nspire GDC Emulator and Geogebra will be presented. Next part of the presentation includes how technology can be used in mathematical modelling to derive mathematical modelling function of real life applications. Last part of the presentation is on how technology will play major role in the future of mathematics education with interactive lessons than encourages self-directed learning.
