Using a Wiki, GeoGebra, and Jing to Support Blended Collaboration in Mathematics

Page history last edited by Geoff Roulet 10 years, 7 months ago

This is the start page for a workshop presented by Jill Lazarus and Geoff Roulet at the May 2-4, 2013 OAME annual conference, Think BIG, Seneca College, Toronto.


The linked pages should also be useful for those not attending the workshop, but wishing to use GeoGebra and Jing to add student sharing and collaboration to the online component of a mathematics course.



In this session we will explore how a course website using a wiki service (PBworks, http://pbworks.com/; Wikispaces, http://www.wikispaces.com/), or an LMS can facilitate the sharing of student ideas and support collaborative problem solving through the posting of student created Jing (http://www.techsmith.com/jing.html) screen capture videos and GeoGebra (http://www.geogebra.org/cms/) applets. We will demonstrate how these tools were used in a Grade 10 Academic (MPM2D) (Ontario curriculum) course.



To share mathematical work using a wiki, GeoGebra, and Jing, workshop participants and students must be able to complete three tasks: edit a wiki page, embed a GeoGebra applet in a wiki page, and record and embed a Jing video in a wiki page. The links below will take you to pages that provide general instructions for these three steps.



In the workshop we will use the above three steps to share work on a Comparing Cell Phone Plans mathematics task.


More details concerning student sharing and collaboration can be found on the wiki at: http://collabmath.pbworks.com/


A journal article by Jill Lazarus and Geoff Roulet describing work in an Ontario Grade 10 class using a wiki, GeoGebra and Jing for mathematics collaboration appeared in the June 2013 issue of the Ontario Mathematics Gazette. This article can be accessed by clicking on the link below.
