I’m skimming another article about math and tech — not developmental math. It is:  Sharp, L.A., & Hamil, M. (2018). Impact of a web-based adaptive supplemental digital resource on student mathematics performance. Online Learning, 22(1), 81-92. doi:10.24059/olj.v22i1.1133 I read the literature summary and… digital supplements might not work so well for assorted subpopulations. THe results for […]

TLDR  boring stuff on figuring out computer stuff… Resorted to the Geogebra forum again – just to look for something and mirabile dictu, my question had appeared and I got an answer.   I’m 90% sure it’s what I posted as self-found answer in different terms.   There were some comments of varying constructiveness after that but […]
