Markus Hohenwarter studied mathematics and computer science at the University of Salzburg in Austria. As part of his master's thesis he designed and implemented the dynamic mathematics software GeoGebra. After his PhD in mathematics education he spent three years at universities in Florida where he was working in projects with middle and high school teachers. In 2010, he joined Johannes Kepler University Linz in Austria where he is now leading the department of mathematics education. In 2013, he received an honorary doctorate in Argentina for his work on GeoGebra.
Sharing, Assessment and Collaboration with GeoGebra
Initially, GeoGebra was designed as a stand-alone tool for mathematical experiments and visualisations. During the last years, GeoGebra's website has been extended by features for sharing materials, assessment of homework, support of exams, and collaboration tools for students and teachers. In this presentation, I want to show both best practice examples for technology use in mathematics teaching as well as discuss the role of GeoGebra in a world of Learning Managment Systems, Bring Your Own Device and Flipped Classroom. In my view, only the connection of such different strands will allow us to really take advantage of the potential of technology for education. Workshop:
Learning Managment Systems and GeoGebra
In this workshop, we will try out some of the features of GeoGebra Groups, our learning managment system based on the GeoGebra Materials online sharing platform. We will also discuss pros and cons of some other GeoGebra integrations with Moodle, Google Classroom and other learning platforms. Furthermore, I would like to discuss with you the potential of turning the GeoGebra community into a social network for STEM education where you can follow other authors and groups to share materials and ideas.
