I’m Still an Active GeoGebra User
GeoGebra has improved a lot since I was first acquainted with it in 2006. For the subscribers of this blog, you have probably come across my series of tutorials on how to use the app. In recent years, GeoGebra has evolved into several apps that can be used for specific tasks. It has also become compatible with major operating systems including Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android. The different GeoGebra apps are the following:
- Scientific Calculator
- Graphing Calculator
The Classic has two versions and is the most comprehensive among the apps. The 3D app has also support from Augmented Reality. In addition, one of the recent updates of GeoGebra is its support for examinations.
My Current Work on GeoGebra
Personally, I have been involved in developing applets and lessons for the GeoGebra Institute in my country (see example below). You can view my applets at the official GeoGebra website and some short videos demonstrating the capabilities of GeoGebra at our GeoGebra Institute Facebook page. The official website of our GeoGebra Institute is currently being updated here and hopefully, we can upload lessons that are readily available for teachers soon.
At the Institute where I work, we have also integrated GeoGebra in several of our teacher trainings. Last year, we have obtained funding to train potential trainers. The project includes developing a module for future trainers and a 2-phase training. The training was supposed to be start in April but was postponed due to the current pandemic.
Some Resource on GeoGebra
There are so many tutorials if you want to learn GeoGebra. You can see my tutorials here or read the GeoGebra Manual. As for the applets, there are millions of applets uploaded in the GeoGebra website. Some of the excellent GeoGebraists are Daniel Mentrard, Tim Bzherzhinski. The GeoGebra Institute of Bogota is also very active.
