Math and Instructional Technology Professional Development A listing of professional development created collaboratively with the Department of Math and Office of Instructional Technology.





This professional development was created by New York City math teachers in conjunction with DOE Department of Math staff and technology integration specialists. This professional development is designed to enable a teacher who has access to a projector and classroom set of internet-ready computers to enhance teaching and learning using 21st Century tools. This professional development is aligned to the National Educational Technology standards, The Math standards and the National Staff Development Council standards, and can be used in conjunction with any math program.

Celebrating Student Math Work with Digital Data Displays

Elementary Sample Unit
(Consists of 8, 45-60 minute sessions)

In Celebrating Student Math Work with Digital Data Displays participants discover how to use technology to enhance the learner's ability to collect, organize, display and analyze data. Upon completion of this class, participants will have the resources to use technology to publish student work.

Enrich Instruction in a Geometry and Measurement Unit with Technology

Grade 6 Sample Unit
(Consists of 8, 45-60 minute sessions)

Discover how to use Geometer’s SketchPad and web resources to enrich instruction in a geometry and measurement unit. This professional development is designed to enable a teacher who has access to a projector and classroom set of internet-ready computers to enhance teaching and learning using 21st Century tools.
