Expressive Digital Tools for Elementary Math Education (2015)


This video provides a tour of several digital tools that support students in exploring the basic concepts of multiplication and division. They are part of a tablet-based software system called Classroom Learning Partner (CLP), which allows students to use a tablet pen to create and manipulate mathematical representations and wirelessly send them to the teacher. The complete history of students’ interaction with the computer is saved along with the final representation and is thus available for analysis by teacher and researchers. CLP also performs automatic analysis and sorting of students’ work to help teachers choose appropriate examples for class discussion.
