This recorded edWebinar focuses on the challenges and opportunities that games, mobile devices, and online learning present to high-quality mathematics education. Is it possible to teach and learn mathematics effectively outside the traditional classroom? What is the role of the teacher in such settings? What is the role of the parents? Hear these questions and share some of the lessons learned from building and supporting a leading online math learning platform around the world.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to K-5 teachers and school and district leaders.
