O Papel Pedagógico das Artes e das Mídias Digitais na Prática do Currículo de Matemática de Ontário
Alternative titleThe pedagogic role of the arts and digital media in the practice of the Ontario mathematics curriculum
MetadataShow full item record
I have investigated interfaces about the arts and digital media in mathematics education, conceptualizing the notion of digital mathematical performance (DMP). In this article, I discuss connections between: (a) the mathematical strands and processes of the K-8 Ontario Mathematics Curriculum in Canada, and; (b) DMP produced by students. Based on the analysis of twenty-two DMP, I argue that DMP may offer ways to: (1) explore most of the mathematical processes of the Ontario Curriculum, and; (2) open windows into the exploration of math contents. I highlight the educational significance in practicing DMP as an innovative process that integrates multimodality, playfulness, and creativity. In contrast, I have found that the production of DMP does not guarantee the in-depth connection between the math strands and processes of the Curriculum. Generally, students explored contents about Geometry, which is not surprising, regarding the visual nature of both: geometrical and digital media representations.
