Commonwealth of Learning and IT for Change are offering a course for teachers and teacher educators on the use of Geogebra for mathematics teaching and learning from the 2nd to the 30th of May, 2022.
Details of the course:
Teaching Mathematics with Technology (TMT) course introduces mathematics teachers to the use of Geogebra, a Free and Open Source (FOSS) graphic software application, to create interactive lessons, student self-learning materials as well as other teaching resources. The use of ICT in Mathematics teaching has taken on a new urgency due to the global pandemic, as restrictions on physical contact have seen many schools adopt online and other forms of distance education.

At the end of the course you will be able to:
- Appreciate the role of ICT in educational processes
- Use Geogebra for creating mathematics resources
- Access and contribute to Open Educational Repositories of Geogebra
- Develop new teaching-learning practices using Geogebra
