Pearson just came out with a press release about their new enVisionMATH curiculum, which they claim “meets the iPod Generation on its Turf.”
Here’s Pearson’s marketing video – hard to tell from this how much of the system is book-based, how much is instructor resources, and how much is actual interactive computer materials. But, I keep saying that this kind of stuff is going to be arriving in higher ed one of these days. Read more about the software here.
What will we be doing when THESE students get to College? I hope, by that point in time, we’ll have something better than whiteboards and markers. But I’m afraid that math instructors will have to stop being the “nomads” of the college, and get some of their own dedicated computer lab and classroom space first.
