Innovation for Multimedia-based Teaching in Enhancing High School Students’ Mathematical Thinking Ability

Yaya S. Kusumah

Abstract

One of the most important emphases in the new curriculum (K2013) is that students are expected to have a number of competencies which can be used for solving problems in various situations. Some of these competencies include critical, logical, creative, and systematically thinking abilities, which should be applicable in dealing with various problems in their daily life. This high demands definitely require the implementation of new approaches and methods of teaching, based on the characteristics of the concepts, the level of students’ thinking, the application of the concepts in real world, and the use of appropriate information technology. It is necessary for teachers to understand and apply appropriate models of teaching in order that they can optimize students’ motivation; enhancing students’ interest in dealing with mathematics; maximizing students’ process of learning; and assisting students in using some current sophisticated technological devices in the latest development, as the 21st century skills. Teachers should be motivated, encouraged, and assisted in using information technology for their teaching activities, particularly in information technology-based instruction, to enhance students’ learning achievement. In this paper, the needs of information technology application in mathematics teaching and learning are described, followed by the discussions which cover the use of computers as media in mathematics teaching, some varieties of information technology-based instruction, and a number of different types of interactions which can be utilized in information technology-based instructions.
