 Workshop Description: Participants will explore the ways in which virtual manipulatives in ActivInspire, Pearson eTools, web sites, Pixie software, and Kidspiration software can support an elementary school math objective under the Numbers and Operations standard.

 

Outcome:  Participants will increase skills in the use and integration of technology in classroom instruction. 

 

Indicator: Participants will explore virtual manipulatives and identify how they can be used to present information and content in different ways, differentiate the ways students can express what they know, and stimulate interest and motivation to learn.
