Developing Modules for the Preparation of Elementary Mathematics Specialists
Funding Agency: Cisco Learning Institute
Period: 2/9/2008 - 1/9/2011
The goals of the project are to build practice-focused professional development modules. These modules are designed for elementary teachers who teach mathematics and may play leadership roles in mathematics education. Dev-TE@M is developing a prototype module that will integrate four elements of content: mathematics geared to the demands of teaching, instructional practices for diverse classrooms and contexts, students' ideas and ways of thinking about mathematics, and approaches to systematically learn from and improve teaching. The Dev-TE@M project's overall aim is to use innovative technologies to build interactive modules that will provide high-quality learning experiences and assessments that are accessible, coherent, and usable at scale.
