The new NIACE maths app – Maths Everywhere – has been praised by the Skills Minister, Matthew Hancock MP, at the AoC Conference in Birmingham today, as one example of how technology is transforming teaching and learning.
Matthew Hancock, said:
"Embracing technology involves changing the role of the teacher. Less lecturer, more tutor. Supporting and guiding pupils as they learn. Developing character. mentoring and motivating. Just as blackboards were resisted two hundred years ago because teachers didn’t want to turn their backs to the class, but quickly became ubiquitous, so in a few short years online technology will form a huge part of the way we teach."
