Target Audience: 

Designing Powerful Digital Environments for Professional Development
Cathy Fosnot, Mathematics in the City

Professional development environments that include digital video allow for the examination of children at work, opportunities to look at students over time, and analysis of the teacher’s decision making. This observation begs the question of how best to shape mathematics education courses that build on the use of digital environments. This session examines some possibilities for developing both content and pedagogical knowledge.
