MCM at MEDA conference in Copenhagen
With our conference report, we want to give an insight in our activities in Denmark’s beautiful capital city Copenhagen during the last week.
From 5th till 7th September 2018, the conference „Mathematical Education in the Digital Age“ took place. It is a part of the European Researchers of Mathematical Education, the most popular international professional association of mathematics education. More than 90 researchers from the field of digital education met during this event. Also the team around Prof. Dr. Matthias Ludwig was part in order to present the mobile application „MathCityMap“. MathCityMap was developed at Goethe University and is a system to create and run math trails. During the stay, a math trail in Copenhagen’s city center was created as a “present” for the city. Simone Jablonski and Joerg Zender, two research assistants and PhD students presented the review system of MathCityMap and were actively involved in the working groups of the conference. Here, important contacts were established, e.g. with the partner University of Pennsilvania (Philadelphia, USA). The contribution is included in the proceedings of MEDA. A special success of the presentation was the mentioning of the project in the final closing ceremony.
