The Digital Math Experience for Teachers


Classroom technology has been transformational in many ways. We’ve been able to transverse remote learning, introduce more efficient workflows, and better prepare students for their future. Surely, there is no going back from here.

Classrooms will only become more and more digitized, with technology doing what it does with assessments, assignments, testing, and even curriculum. That’s a good thing, as long as the teacher remains the center of the classroom.

So, what is the experience like as an educator in a digital space? Within a math classroom, technology helps facilitate a true thinking classroom that fosters collaboration and communication among students.

A Thinking Math Classroom

In a thinking math classroom, the emphasis shifts from rote memorization to deep conceptual understanding. Students are encouraged to explore mathematical concepts through inquiry-based learning, problem-solving activities, and group discussions.

By engaging in these activities, students not only develop their critical thinking skills but also learn to communicate their reasoning effectively to others. For example, group problem-solving tasks can challenge students to think creatively, collaborate with their peers, and justify their solutions using mathematical arguments.

Technology plays a role in encouraging student collaboration as well. Students can engage with one another in a variety of ways, including chat or even video.

The Digital Math Curriculum

Digital math curriculum plays a pivotal role in creating a dynamic and engaging learning environment conducive to critical thinking. Unlike traditional textbooks, digital resources offer interactive features that allow students to actively engage with mathematical concepts. For instance, interactive simulations and virtual manipulatives enable students to visualize abstract concepts and explore mathematical relationships firsthand.

Digital platforms like Kiddom allow teachers to monitor student progress and understanding and identify areas for improvement in real-time.

Furthermore, a digital math curriculum is inherently flexible and adaptive, catering to the diverse learning needs of students. With personalized learning pathways, students can work at their own pace, receiving additional support or enrichment activities as needed.

Digital curriculum is easily customized and/or edited. It can be modified to meet the unique needs of your student body, meet local or state standards, or changed to adapt to future requirements.

Easing Teacher Workload with Digital Tools

From a teacher’s perspective, implementing a digital math curriculum can streamline many aspects of classroom instruction. Digital platforms offer a wealth of resources, including lesson plans, pre-made presentations, and auto-grading.saving teachers time and effort. Moreover, digital tools facilitate data-driven decision-making, allowing teachers to track student progress, identify areas of difficulty, and adjust their teaching strategies accordingly.

One of the key advantages of a digital math curriculum is its ability to provide actionable insights through data analytics. By analyzing student performance data, teachers can gain valuable insights into individual learning styles, preferences, and misconceptions. Armed with this information, teachers can tailor their instruction to address the specific needs of each student, maximizing learning outcomes for all.

The shift towards a thinking math classroom represents a fundamental reimagining of mathematics education, placing greater emphasis on critical thinking, collaboration, and communication. Technology serves as a powerful ally in this endeavor, providing the tools and resources necessary to create an interactive and engaging learning environment. By leveraging digital technology, educators can empower students to become confident, independent learners who are capable of tackling the challenges of tomorrow’s world with courage and resilience.

Kiddom seamlessly connects the most critical aspects of teaching and learning on one platform.

For the first time, educators can share and manage digital curriculum, differentiate instruction, and assess student work in one place. Learners can take assessments online, see student performance data with the click of a button, and teachers have the insight and tools they need to create individual learning paths.
