Animations as a Transformational Approximation of Practice for Preservice Teachers to Communicate Professional Noticing
This article explores the use of animations as an approximation of practice to provide a transformational technology experience for elementary mathematics preservice teachers. Findings illuminate preservice teachers’ degrees of specificity, with most preservice teachers being more specific about mathematics in their animations, showing promise for animation as a tool for communicating what is noticed. Further, preservice teachers perceived the use of animations a transformational experience, meaning the technological medium provided learning and access beyond what could have been accomplished without the technological support.

“So We Have to Teach Them or What?”: Introducing Preservice Teachers to the Figured Worlds of Urban Youth Through Digital Conversation

In doing so, they were forced to acknowledge the importance of maintaining the belief that all students, including those from urban backgrounds, can and want to engage in rigorous learning.
