ABSTRACT

During the transition from face-to-face to online teaching, we engaged pre- and in-service elementary school teachers in a virtual professional development session. Our main goal for the mathematics session was to encourage play with the use of virtual manipulatives (VMs) and provide activities that support the development of elementary school students’ number sense. Early results indicate that providing opportunities to play with VMs, posting links, answering questions in the chat function, and focusing on a timely topic provided humanistic support during this pandemic.
