Inscriptions: Developing and Communicating Deep Learning of Mathematics in Digital Learning Environments
April 23, 2018, at 3 p.m.
Inscriptions refer to the external representations of thinking (e.g., text, graphical displays, equations, diagrams) that students use to develop, record, and communicate their mathematical understandings. Meaningful experiences with inscriptions require that students have opportunities to build on their prior experiences in ways where their thinking gets picked up, elaborated, and used in future work. Participants will discuss the many opportunities and complexities teachers face when implementing inscriptions in digital learning environments.
