2, 2005] Just an update. The preparation is continuing and information
will be posted as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.
Special Session II of ATCM 2004, we clarified the cause of looking
into Dynamic-Mathematics content - to realize the AOLA e-Learning
framework for Mathematics Education. As it was suggested, a steering
committee for SIGAOLA (Special Interest Group on AOLA) will be
formed. Your participation will be sought. More details will be
available at the beginning of next year. Have a good holiday.

special session II at ATCM 2003, a brief introduction to the concept
of a Cyber Mathematics Community (CMC) was meant to be introduced.
Time did not allow such CMC to be discussed. The CMC is the key
e-infrastructure that facilitates author-once-learn-anywhere
(AOLA) for teachers and researchers of the mathematics community.
The need for AOLA is crucial to the community. The benefits of
technology and mathematics in teaching, learning and research
are well documented in past ATCM conferences and other literature.
Yet, it is not clear how AOLA can be achieved in an e-Learning
environment for Mathematics Education.
We believe current technology provides a solid basis to build
the AOLA e-infrastructure and emerging technology will allow secure
exchange of "activities" and enable mathematical services
that are fundamental to "dynamic-mathematics" content
delivery as we have discussed in the session.
is the initiative of ATCM, Inc to fulfil its mission. Support and
advice from the community are needed if the initiative is to be
fruitful and beneficial to the community.
are only a little over a month before the start of ATCM 2004. In
the special session II, we will continue with the discussion based
on the "AOLA Framework for e-Learning in Mathematics Education."
Please be sure to tune in. Here is a work-in-progress
article that will appear in the Proceedings of ATCM 2004.
plan to form an SIGAOLA (Special Interest Group on AOLA) by early
March next year. If you like to participate and to be included in
the mailing list, please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
