This session will explore how web based resources, technology tools and more can support the reading and comprehension of math and STEM content, create and understand math notation in a digital world, and support real time formative assessment strategies . We need to take away the barriers of reading, digital notation, and static assessment, getting in the way of our students being able to understand the underlying concepts of math and engaging in learning math in a digital environment.
Participants will have an increased understanding of supporting students to read, write and express themselves in maths and STEM, in line with their own personal learning needs, and providing formative assessment opportunities. Access to EquatIO, the new Texthelp math tool designed around the well-evidenced principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), will be made available to all participants.
