Intellectual consumerism in mathematical learning by Dr. Maria Droujkova
About the Presenter:
Maria Droujkova has more than fifteen years of experience developing programs and courses for helping people learn mathematics and engaging in original, thought-provoking studies. Maria researches and develops face-to-face and online learning environments. She has designed and theorized about learning experiences for diverse learners and situations: early algebra games for pre-K groups of children; Math Clubs and online experiences for family-centered communities; classes and seminars for k-20 and graduate students; and seminars, workshops and classes for pre-service and in-service teachers. She is the founder of multiple online educational communities, including Natural Math network and Math 2.0 interest group, and an active member of many online educator networks. Maria has MS in Applied Mathematics from Tulane University and PhD in Mathematics Education from NCSU. Her studies have been supported by grants, and published and presented nationally and internationally.
About the Presentation:
Focusing on mathematics, I invite participants to discuss how pure learning promotes intellectual consumerism. Multiple social forces, such as child labor laws, formal schooling, institution and extension of adolescence, and more recently degree inflation, are preventing students from meaningfully participating in productive endeavors until relatively late in life. Online communities hold the hope of change, supporting healthier balances of consumption and creation, as I show using examples of online mathematical communities.
Integrating Technology for Active Life-long Learning
CO11 on IT4ALL Moodle & WiZiQ
Feb 4-6, 2011
Welcome to the annual connecting online live online conference (CO11). You are cordially invited to participate at the live online conference on the weekend of Feb 4-6 2011.
The conference will be of interest to educators, administrators, students, and community members who value the importance of integrating technology into the curriculum to improve instruction and learning. Online learning involves various skills on the part of the instructor and learner. These include social and communication skills, social networking, independent learning strategies, critical and higher order thinking skills, creativity, and effective online and face-to-face facilitation. In addition, there are may challenges that the educators, administrators, students, and community members face.
The CO11 will be conducted on IT4ALL Moodle with the presentations on WiZiQ through the Moodle.
