“Educational technology is making a modest difference in learning of mathematics. It is a help but not a break through.” (Cheung and Salvin, 2011, p:20)
This workshop is designed for teachers to explore “hands-on” activities to support inquiry in classroom. Participants will have a better understanding of how ICT may be used to enhance the teaching of Mathematics.
Natasha Awada has a Bachelor’s degree in Applied Mathematics and a Master degree in Education from Sunderland University. She has led the Math Department (DP & American Diploma) in Jeddah Knowledge International School for 7 years and taught the following curriculums for the last 13 years; DP Math Higher Level, DP Math Standard level, MYP Math and the IGCSE curriculum. Natasha is expert in a range of math software such as Autograph, Geogebra, Desmos and Graphic Display Calculators.
As a qualified International Baccalaureate Workshop Leader, Natasha has delivered numerous workshops in the Europe and Middle East region mainly in Dubai, Prague, Belgium, Germany, Vienna, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia.
