The Guardian (blog) iPads in the classroom: embedding technology in the primary curriculum The Guardian (blog) We have technology-led projects ongoing in writing, reading, maths and science where progress will be measurable and comparable to rates...
This is exactly the type of project that makes maths engaging - child-centred rather than teacher-centred, cross-curricular, fun and engaging, authentic, uses collaborative learning and peer teaching, uses Gardner's Multiple Intelligences to maximise learning, learning outcomes are measurable and comparable. This is not just learning information to regurgitate; it is learning information and using it to learn more. It's about teaching students to be creative and to be responsible for their own learning.
OPINION: Maths equation now adds up to problems Newcastle Herald There is consensus that fewer young people taking the higher end mathematics means that we will have increasing shortages of key science, technology, engineering and mathematics...
This person makes a lot of sense. Schools need to revise what maths is being taught and how it is being taught. The comment 'our increasingly technological world requires everyone to have higher levels of numeracy than ever before.' is valid. We need to teach in such a way that students want to engage in their learning and then use that learning throughout their lives.
Telegraph.co.uk Adults 'reliant on calculators' in their daily lives Telegraph.co.uk Last year the Telegraph's Make Britain Count campaign highlighted this country's poor performance in maths, pointing out for example that 17 million 16 to...
This is a valid point - we need maths in our everyday lives.

ECB brings cricket to the classroom ECB.co.uk ECB today announced the launch of the Ashes School Challenge - a free interactive educational programme which will be aimed at primary schools nationwide ahead of this summer's Investec Ashes Test Series.
I think this would appeal to students because it's relevant, it's going on throughout half the year at least, and it can be intergrated into other subjects.
Although this is a commercial advertisement, it is interesting to hear the students appreciate the animations for their clarity, brightness and helpful teaching. These types of resources could be motivating, empowering and engaging.

Today I shared five different presentations for teachers in Yukon Public Schools in the district’s annual professional development conference. I recorded audio for each session and published them to my secondary podcast channel, “Fuel for Educational Change Agents.” Here are the session titles, descriptions, resource links, and podcast audio links. Of these five sessions, the only “brand new one” (which I’d never presented before) was the third session on Wolfram Alpha. If you’re just going to listen to one of these, that’s the one I’d recommend! Wolfram Alpha is MINDBLOWINGLY powerful and amazing. As co-founder Theodore Gray said in October at the Educause Conference in Denver, Wolfram Alpha has the potential to fundamentally change our relationship to computation and mathematics in the same way Google has (and continues to) change our relationship with information access.
Very interesting, especially the sophisticated Wolfram Alpha. These tools will continue to evolve and change very rapidly which is why it's so important to teach children HOW to learn rather than WHAT to learn.

Maths: While using blogging as an avenue for teaching and learning literacy may be more obvious, blogs can also be used for maths. ... I teach Grade Four at Leopold Primary School near Geelong in Victoria, Australia.
Reading this has been quite inspirational, Mrs Morris. Thank you. I like the simplicity, the logic and the evidence of the learning outcomes.
The idea of almost instant assessment and tracking of students' progress is important, time-saving and has obvious appeal for both teacher and students, which is attainable only with the use of hand-held technology. This digital technology does seem to be more engaging for the students.
Maths Apps are the ones most frequently searched for on this site. I sometimes think that if I had some of these apps I would have taken a greater interest in Maths as a kid. It was not that I was disinterested I just missed some of the basics. With some of these game based apps at least students can be engaged long enough to discovery some of the basic maths concepts.
