Annoyingly I’ve never been to a GeoGebra workshop; I’ve only presented on GeoGebra and so I don’t know what other presenters are doing/talking about. My feeling – and this could be completely wrong – is that workshops tend to focus more on individual exploration and technical skill rather than pedagogy. There’s obvious reasons for promoting technical skill since it’s important for teachers to develop their own applets and facilitate their students’ use of Geogebra. Doing this however should not be to the detriment of pedagogical use which I believe so often happens when technology is introduced.
Since I’ve recently put a workshop together – for the practical pedagogies event in Toulouse – I thought I’d share it online for two reasons which I explain in Part 1. I’m sure it’s very much a common sense approach to GeoGebra so nothing especially ground breaking. I hope either you gain something from it, or I do with your comments. Apologies it’s broken up into lots of pieces – videos were too large for a standard vimeo account.

Once your done with the main workshop, here’s the link to show how to make an animated Ferris Wheel from the Appendices.
