Description

Technology has changed the math classroom. Desmos online graphing calculator is one of the tools that opens up possibilities for students to explore math rather than do math. In this workshop you will be introduced to what Desmos is, how to use it, and ideas for teaching with Desmos. 

This workshop is NOT specific to Google tools, however it will be delivered through Google Classroom with Google Apps examples. Whatever platforms you use it should be transferrable.

Go Slow Workshops™ are 6 weeks. This gives you the opportunity to practice what you have learned before moving on to learning something new. Each week’s activities are designed to take about an hour. (Note, this does not include the time you spend with your students to try out the activities.) 

Unlike a self paced video course, Go Slow Workshops™ are designed to be interactive and collaborative. Activities for the week are posted on Monday and you have all week to work through the activities and interact with the teacher and other workshop participants. At the end of the 6 weeks the workshop will be archived, but can be found in Google Classroom by using the menu to access “Archived classes.” 

Workshop not a class. Go Slow Workshops™ are not a graded class. Participate as much or as little as you wish. As the saying goes “You get out of it what you put into it.” You can simply lurk and see what is posted or fully interact with Alice and workshop participants.

Go Slow Workshops™ are conducted through Google Classroom. Classroom is designed to be collaborative, interactive, and makes sharing easy. For this reason I choose to use Classroom as the platform for the workshops. The default for school G Suite accounts is to RESTRICT you to your school. You will need a PERSONAL Gmail account that ends in @gmail.com to join the workshops. If you would like to use your school G Suite email please have the Google Apps admin whitelist fresnoteach.org in the admin panel. 

If you have any challenges joining a Go Slow Workshop™ or have questions about a workshop please email info@alicekeeler.com
