E-learning and Mathematical Graphics

Project 2003: Children's Mathematical Graphics and Early Excellence Centres

An action research project supported by the Institute of Education, London University and Mirandanet and funded by the DfES and the General Teaching Council. A significant aspect of the research scholarship included planning, managing and facilitating a national online community of teachers from Early Excellence Centres throughout England. The teachers developed both their understanding of children’s early mathematical mark-making and their pedagogy through a blended learning approach.

A unique feature of this discussion forum was the inclusion of examples of children's mathematical graphics that were contributed by teachers in the project, from the children in their settings. These 'e-nat-graphics' were visible on the same screen as the text of the discussion
