Teaching TI–Nspire-CX Technology

Course summary

Porto, Portugal

6-day Course

Erasmus+ KA1

When discussing and applying concepts from subjects such as Mathematics, Physics or Chemistry, the graphing calculator is a recurrent tool for solving problems analytically.

TI–Nspire-CX technology allows teachers to create dynamic and shared learning scenarios, making it easier for their students to understand the content.

Through different problem perspectives and representations this technology provides significant learning.
Its applications – Calculator, Lists and Spreadsheet, Data and Statistics, Graphs and Geometry, Notes, Vernier DataQuest and Questions – allow the creation of complete documents and structured teaching activities.

This course aims to understand the framing of scientific and/or graphing calculator application within the current basic and secondary Education curricula, in subjects such as Mathematics and Chemistry.

Take the first steps to get to know the essential tools of the TI-Nspire™ CX II-T technology in order to maximize the advantages that it allows when working with students, especial ly when per forming autonomous research tasks and problem-solving exercises.

By actively engaging in innovative learning scenarios (that promote 21st century skills), teachers should act as facilitators – transversally promoting creative, reflective and computational thinking, by resorting to Algorithms and Programming.

The main goal is, as you know, to solve problems. Using TI-Nspire™ ecosystems, allows to explore mathematical concepts according to a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) approach.

This is becoming increasingly relevant given that technology and mathematics have a large and growing influence in many aspects of society.

The TI-Nspire™ CX II-T graphing calculator received the Comenius EduMedia 2020 Seal.

Course Duration and Costs

All costs can be supported with a KA grant under the Erasmus+ programme.

For a 6-day course, Learning Together charges 580 euros per participant (A+B).

For our 6-day course, the course fee is 480 EUR per participant, for tuition and materials (6-day course x 80,00 EUR per day). This can be covered with the course fee that you receive with your KA1 grant: 80 EUR / day / person.

Notice:

The course fee for our 2022 courses has been adjusted to meet the new KA1 grant budget (Erasmus+ Programme 2021-2027). Before, sending organisations received 70€/day/person for course fees. Now, the new KA1 grant provides 80€/day/person.

Payment of 100 EUR per participant (total amount).

This fee also includes our social program, which you can see below.

Notice:

In the previous Erasmus+ programme, each educational organisation also received 350 EUR per participant for organisational support. Learning Together only charged 150 EUR for administration and organisation costs (local organisation and logistics, pedagogical support activities, learning validation, certification and Europass Mobility validation). With the new programme, the organisational support fees are now a standard 100 EUR per person – however, they can vary according project type (job-sadowing, long-term,…).
