I am a high school math teacher of almost 20 years’ experience who began using Technology in my math classes (specifically Geogebra) about ten years ago. I had always wanted to make my curriculum more dynamic but up to that point never knew how. To that point in my career, all of my curriculum involved static images. So when I learned to use the Geogebra application, Curriculum Development became exciting. I was (and am) convinced that a dynamic creation which allows for manipulation of geometric figures and provides automatic feedback is superior to one that doesn't. As a long time Special Needs teacher I started off by creating Dynamic Demonstrations and then realized that Games would be a great way for students to practice skills. Over the past few years, (in my work with Regular Ed. & Honors level students) I have seen how Geogebra can easily challenge students (1) with their logic and reasoning, (2) with their ability to create/construct and (3) with their ability to problem solve. Currently, as part of a Project Based Learning initiative I am teaching a new course called “Game-Making” -an asynchronously run online Graduate Level Course (3 credits).
