Computer-Based Math Education Summit 2012
September 6, 2012 — Michael Belcher, computerbasedmath.org
In November 2011 we held the first Computer-Based Math Education Summit in London. Over two days we brought an unprecedented cross-section of people with a stake in STEM education to address the question “In an era of ubiquitous computing, how should we rebuild math education from the ground up, to keep pace with and drive progress in the real world?”
Last year’s summit was a first glimpse at some of the work from the computer-based math community worldwide. The Computer-Based Math Education Summit 2012, again being held in London, will be tackling more of these issues in a mainstream way. If you want to have a stake in math education in 10 years’ time, this summit is unmissable.
The conference will include various interactive sessions, including live demos and audience discussions and debates, covering the following themes:
- Society’s Changing Needs for Math
- Computer Science, Maths, and ICT—Where Does Programming Fit?
- Games, Competitions, and New Modalities for Learning
- State-of-the-Art Technology for CBM
- Is CBM Winning Over the Critics?
- Assessment and CBM
- STEM Skills for University and Industry
- The Politics of Math
- Prototyping a CBM Lesson
- What’s In, What’s Out for the CBM Curriculum?
Be sure to watch videos from the Computer-Based Math Education Summit 2011 sessions and “Stop Teaching Calculating, Start Teaching Math” from Conrad Wolfram.
The change to computer-based math education is closer than ever, and Mathematica users are among the best-placed to be a part of this change.
