Recordings of previous sessions
Join Andrew (a former MS and HS math teacher) for this 2-part exploration of the mathematics tool Desmos - Desmos is a free web application that has been crafted by math teachers to help support student exploration of this subject that many students find frustrating to learn and teachers find frustrating to teach. This tool provides a number of different modes of exploration that set the standard for usability for digital math tools.

Andrew's 3-Minute Instructional Tech
At #517EdTech, we believe that the most influential interactions that happen in a school are between teachers and learners.
As such, we seek to support educators in investing their time, energy, brainpower and collaboration in reconsidering the possibilities for the seemingly-normal (but wildly impactful) interactions they have with learners each day.
#517EdTech was launched in 2014 with goal of connecting educators in Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham Counties in Mid-Michigan for the collective investment where it matters most. Our professional learning network includes educators from over 20 public, private, and post-secondary educational communities, and has grown to over 700 educators in the Capital Region. There's room for you, too.
