Abstract

In this paper, Learning Design Map (LDMap) to document and share mathematical teaching and learning experiences are proposed. These maps are intended for use by mathematics teachers in developing countries. The development of the maps is based on a survey that gathered information related to the real and perceived ICT infrastructure, facilities, and resources, in one accessible area in a developing country. These maps can be created by teachers. It is expected that the map will be shared and modified by teachers and that there will be a circulation of the mathematical teaching and learning experiences among teachers through the use of these maps. The Learning Design Map (LDMap) is based on XML technology so that the data contained in this file can be extracted across platforms. Through mapping assessments, outcomes, resources and other attributes as considered desireable in the LDMaps can be designed to facilitate curriculum review. The benefit of the use of LDMaps for curriculum review is explored.
