Second Announcement for APEC-Tsukuba International Conference V

Since 2006, 19 APEC member economies have been participating in the APEC-HRDWG Mathematics Lesson Study project proposed by Japan and Thailand. It has great influence on the establishment of Lesson Study Movements in other subjects such as Science and English as for second language.
For the innovation of teaching approaches with computer, the conference focuses on textbooks and educational tools in mathematics, especially e-textbooks as for newest tools in teaching mathematics.
The targets of the conference are as follows:

Q1. How do you use your textbooks in your country?
Sharing the methods of teaching with textbooks and knowing theories on curriculum and textbooks
Q2. How can we use our textbooks meaningfully?
Elaborating the model approaches using textbooks to develop mathematical thinking and communication
Q3. How do you use blackboards and projectors in your country?
Sharing the various ways of utilizing traditional equipments in classroom such as blackboards as well as projectors and computers
Q4. How can we innovate our teaching approaches for teachers?
Knowing the innovative tools to develop e-textbooks and sharing the methods of teaching

The conference focuses on mathematics. At the same time, these topics are meaningful for other subjects, educational technology and ICT education on the context of lesson study.
