In order to more effectively engage students and utilize instruction time, Sara Cortichiato of the Wauwatosa East Math Department will use a $13,255 Education Foundation of Wauwatosa (EFW) grant to purchase two class sets of Nspire Navigator graphing calculator technology. The Nspire Navigator allows the teacher to give quick quizzes or formative assessments within each class. It sends questions to the students, which gives instructors immediate feedback to determine the class’ needs. The teacher can monitor quickly to see what needs to be re-taught and what needs to be expanded on. Research shows that students using this technology have demonstrated deeper understanding and greater abilities in drawing inferences. In addition it enhances student engagement, collaboration, and learning.
