MOBILE LEARNING OF MATHS
WITH THE MILAGE LEARN+ PLATFORM
In this course, participants will explore the free MILAGE Learning+ platform, developed to help mathematics teachers, but can be used for other subjects too, enabling students to access educational content in and outside the classroom.
Teachers will start to explore the MILAGE Learning+ app, for Apple and Android devices, that works as a support tool for students which provides them with the opportunity to autonomously solve given exercises compiled in worksheets, while also supporting the teacher in managing classroom time, to the extent that the teacher does not have to provide solutions to exercises in the classroom which are already integrated into the MILAGE Learning+ app.
In order to stimulate and support the implementation of the various activities proposed, the MILAGE Learning+ app interface incorporates gamification features, segmenting different levels of exercise difficulty to support students with greater difficulties and also motivate more advanced students in learning mathematics. To include all students, the app provides detailed videos with the resolution of exercises for students with more difficulties. There is also a concise video with the essential steps to guide students through the resolution of the exercise. In addition, the MILAGE Learning+ app also includes a self and peer assessment to stimulate the student to work independently.
Later participants explore the MILAGE Learning + Teachers, that works has a back office in Windows and Apple computers, free for teachers and schools, to make content for mathematics teaching, as well as other subjects that can be included in the MILAGE Learning+ app.
This course is very practical and the MILAGE Learn+ app has already many exercises for teaching mathematics and can be explored for other subjects too. This platform can also support online, blended-learning or flipped-learning models.
