Date :August 1, 2014

Experiences from Workshop 1

Outcomes from the workshop

  2. Introduction to Geogebra
  3. Problem solving discussions and strategies – an introduction
  4. A small group of interested teachers actively engaged in KOER resource creation
  5. An understanding of where conceptual gaps exist for children through examples of problems

Outcomes vs objectives of the workshop

  1. Teachers were introduced to the block level programme
  2. Introduction to ICT skills and KOER was limited – KOER was limited to demonstration of textbooks

  4. The problem solving discussion was felt to be useful by most teachers but extending it and integrating with classroom lessons is a challenge
