We're looking at how we can better use digital tools to support the development of 21st century skills, with a particular emphasis on our maths programme. 
We're a school that uses the SOLO framework and are looking at ways we can encourage our students to use digital devices at the relational and extended abstract levels within the maths programmes.
Would appreciate any thoughts/ideas/ suggestions/experiences people may have?
Thanks.

    Thanks Donna, that is a great question which encourages deeper thinking for us as teachers. 

    Making connections is an important concept in Maths. I am thinking of using Dan Meyer's 101 questions http://www.101qs.com/index.php that promotes students to ask appropriate Maths questions.

    Just found 'Build with Chrome' which is a tool that can promote application, generalisation and creativity.

    Look forward to hearing more ideas from everyone. What other strategies and tools are we using at the relational and extended abstract levels within the maths programmes ?
