Description

With the standardizing of the curriculum, it has become progressively more difficult to create an explorative and interactive atmosphere in the classroom. School districts and teachers are beginning to explore how technology can be used to create more dynamic learning opportunities after school. This article explores the benefits of technology within a high school mathematics classroom. This study included a flipped classroom approach and an after school technology activity. Data for each technique was drawn from lessons created for an AP Calculus class and a College Algebra class respectively, and includes lesson plans and resources, self-made materials, student opinions, and field notes. The findings of this investigation seem to indicate that technology can be extremely useful for after school learning, with the stipulation that the technology and activity match the learning goals and objectives.
