GeoGebra for beginners online course
Course code: 151CLI004
Registered hours: 5
Standards addressed: 1.2.4, 4.2.5, 6.2.3
The GeoGebra for beginners online course is now available to all NSW DET teachers as an online course. This means you can learn when and where you want and you don’t need to wait for another course to be run. You can complete the course in your own time frame.
GeoGebra for beginners online is a NSW Institute registered, non-facilitated online professional learning course. The focus of the course is the dynamic mathematics software, GeoGebra. The knowledge and skills that you acquire in this course will help you to implement the NSW Digital Education Revolution program in your classroom. This online course is the same course that has been offered previously in the video conference format.
The course is divided into 3 parts:
1. Reflect on how and where technology-based activities can be used to support mathematics learning
2. Explore the GeoGebra ‘universe’ and discover the many educational opportunities this software offers you and your students
3. Develop foundation-level skills in creating dynamic resources for the classroom
Enrol in the course through My PL@DET
The GeoGebra for beginners online course is live at: www.cli.nsw.edu.au/geogebra/
You can also access this course through the DET Portal under My applications / CLAS.
Course participants can upload their GeoGebra files, created in the course, directly to the GeoGebra for beginners online library to share with other mathematics teachers. Have a look at the applets you have access to already. These will be very useful for Year 9 and 10 with laptops.
The PLC forum (DET only) is starting to get some activity. All online participants can use this space for discussion, and also to post their GeoGebra questions. We will endeavour to answer your questions within 24 hours.
