Integrating technology in regular statistics courses and assessments of pre-service teachers
- Andreas Eichler (University of Kassel, Germany)
In 2011, along with a reform in the teacher education programme, the mathematics department of the University of Education, Freiburg, decided to integrate technology in all regular courses and assessments in mathematics and mathematics education for lower secondary pre-service teachers. In this report, an overview of the technology-integrated mathematics teacher education programme called IM2 is given. A further main focus is on the statistics courses as well as on assessments for these courses. Exemplarily, specific parts of the syllabus of statistics courses that are particularly connected with the use of technology are discussed.
