What is the role of digital in building conceptual understanding?


Everyone talks about concept-driven, inquiry-based learning, but what does it look like in practice? What role, if any, do digital tools play in building conceptual mathematical understanding?

In this thought-provoking discussion we explore some of the big questions that teachers have when it comes to conceptual mathematical understanding.
- What is it?
- Why is it important?
- Is procedural fluency a prerequisite for conceptual understanding and mathematical proficiency?
- How can we incorporate digital platforms into our teaching practices to support a conceptual understanding of mathematics?

Contemporary curriculum experts agree that conceptual understanding is key for student success in school, but also in life generally. We’ll look at how a concept-driven education develops effective approaches to teaching and learning.
