Dear Colleagues, Friends, & Supporters,

As a way of helping build a larger IBL community, we would like to introduce you to some of what we know about the broader world of IBL, including the IBL practitioners we have met and the ideas they have shared with us. This month, we are excited to feature Matt Jones' blog about technology ideas on our site. Matt teaches at California State University, Dominguez Hills. You can find more of his IBL blogs at the Math Switch.

This summer, we also wrote a blog about all our evaluation efforts over the last 18 years (18 years?!). You can follow our process of using and creating different beliefs and attitudes surveys and see some of our results and musings.

October 2-3, Volker and Chrissi will facilitate the NDMATYC (North Dakota Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges) conference in Carrington, ND. Please use this form to register.

Matt Jones is sharing some of his technology ideas for the IBL classroom with us: "A few years ago, I got involved in a professional development project for middle school mathematics teachers where all of us were using iPads. Partially as an outgrowth of that project, I started a blog called The Math Switch . In this post, I am going to detail the workflow that emerged in the first year of the project."
