"Conversations about mathematics education in this country pop up frequently in the media – and I have yet to come across anyone who is happy with the way things are in the learning of maths among the nation"s children.
Many try to find out what goes wrong by conducting research. South Africa has about 150 researchers in mathematics education, and there are a number of special mathematics chairs of research and development at various universities. Funding foundations are generally very keen to contribute to research, especially if it is linked to development programmes and if some impact can be measured."
I am a ICT/social media for teaching and learning activist, teacher trainer, maths enthusiast (taught maths for many years) and compulsive obsessive lifelong learner working hard to make the world a better connected place....
I am currently working on a mobile roll-out research project looking at how we can use mobile technologies to improve teaching and learning in rural contexts.
