The Future of Math: Innovations in Classroom Technology

Grantmakers for Education

Virtual

May 9, 12:00 pm ET

Join the final webinar in our learning series on The Future of Math. The pandemic thrust computers into the teaching and learning of math everywhere, leading to a new round of promises about how the latest innovations will jump-start student success. Which of these claims are realistic and which echo decades of wishful thinking about education technology? As AI dominates the news, how should we think about the proper role of technology in the teaching and learning of mathematics?

While each webinar stands on its own, you may be interested in watching the previous webinars in the series: The Future of Math: Where Is Math Education Now and Where Should It Be?, The Future of Math: Content Students Need for the 21st Century, and The Future of Math: Classroom Teaching (April 25).

While others are welcome to attend, this event is intended for members and education grantmakers.

There is no cost to attend this Grantmakers for Education program. Registration closes 15 minutes prior to the program time. By registering for this program, you agree to our Learning Environment Commitment. Thank you for your patience; we review each registration in advance.
