My students are math learners ranging in classes from Algebra 1 to AP Calculus BC. They love to see mathematical ways of thinking represented visually, and they appreciate opportunities to share their thinking with the whole class in a visual way.
Some of my students are trying to learn as much as they possibly can about mathematics in the time they have in high school.
Others are less interested in figuring out answers to questions other people already know, but all of them can engage in authentic tasks that require mathematical thinking.
Students benefit from being able to see, not just hear, their instructor's thinking. Projecting notes created using a stylus makes information relatable in a way that pre-packaged or type-written presentations can never match.
Almost every lesson I've shared with my classes over the last decade has been recorded in a way that is editable and useful for future planning.
Sharing PDF versions of hand-written notes with students who miss class in integral to my ability to meet the needs of students with demanding extra-curricular travel schedules. Being able to respond visually and with freedom to questions originating in the middle of a lesson changes the way questions are valued as learning opportunities for everyone.
