OPEN MATH Summer School 2020

5-10 July 2020

Are you a mathematics teacher of either primary, secondary or university education who wish to integrate technology in their teaching? Would you like to enhance the effectiveness of your math-teaching skills by applying learner-centered approaches?

The OPEN MATH Summer School will help you to get familiarized with ICT tools that can be used in the Mathematics classroom. You will have the opportunity to reflect on your practices and develop competences in applying the inquiry- and project-based learning approach with the assistance of technology. Join us and collaborate with teachers from all over Europe to design digital math questions, virtual manipulatives and interactive learning objects you will be able to use in your classroom.

Educational technology for mathematics teaching and learning
The purpose of this course is to familiarize teachers with ICT tools that can be used in the mathematics classroom. Teachers will reflect on their practices and they will develop their competences in applying the inquiry- and project – based learning approach with the assistance of technological tools. They will collaborate in designing lessons they will then use for their classes.

Target group
Mathematics teachers from primary to university who wish to integrate ICT tools in their teaching and enhance their effectiveness in applying learner-centered approaches.

Aim
To analyze and integrate digital tools and math apps in mathematics teaching so as to apply learner-centered approaches more effectively.

Participation in this course can be funded by the Erasmus+ Programme (Key Action 1, Mobility project for school education staff). See “Fees & Funding” for further assistance and guidelines on how to apply for an Erasmus+ KA1 grant.

The Open Math Summer School will take place from 5th to July 10th July 2020.

Participation in this course can be funded by the Erasmus+ Programme (Key Action 1, Mobility project for school education staff).

Cognitive
To learn about creating digital curriculum in mathematics and designing meaningful digital resources.

Τhe OPEN MATH Summer School is based on three pillars:
Experts in maths education and didactics
Experts in the field of mathematic educations and didactics will guide you with theoretical contributions on the design of learning activities in mathematics which will be illustrated with many examples.
A lot of practical activities
Open Math Summer School offers teachers hands-on training with many activities through the most widely used mathematics apps in education in the world like Cabri.
Create you own activities
Participants will create their activities that will be submitted for discussion by their peers with the aim of further improving them.

To ensure the proper preparation for the training course an c will act as a main hub of communication and for sharing and distributing preparatory material with the participants. Through this website the participants will have access to all materials necessary for their preparation (suggested reading, relevant websites, guidelines etc.) and a common workspace. Moreover, all the information regarding the training course such as the course description, the programme, travelling and accommodation guidelines will also be accessible through the website.
Participants will familiarize themselves with the training topics as well as the course methodology by accessing the relevant resources, materials and tools. Based on their interests they will be invited to participate into one of the working groups each of which will have a different main topic of focus.

At the end of the course, following the presentation of their work on the last day of the course, participants will receive a training certificate that confirms the successful completion of the course and its objectives.

In order to assess whether, and to what extent, the course has reached its objectives and expected results the participants will have to answer, during and at the end of the course, a set of relevant questionnaires that will be provided by the course providers. The results of the questionnaires/survey or a so-called evaluation report will be available to all participants of the course.
