Lua scripting empowers teachers and students in developing simulations and interactive documents and in exploring mathematics and science concepts.
Create new teaching and learning opportunities
Scripts to engage math and science activities and simulations
Create dynamic, interactive programs to meet specific curriculum needs Scripts for wireless data collection
Develop custom applications via the simple-to-use Lua scripting programming and gaming platform
Lua scripts can be inserted in free, downloadable TI-Nspire documents (.tns) and can communicate with the other built-in applications.
The training session is designed as a very gentle introduction to Lua for the TI-Nspire platform. Even those without a programming background should be able to follow these lesson. Some familiarity with TI-Nspire native tools are helpful.
We will train educators to produce animations/scripts that fit the curriculum and to develop the right strategy to use scripts and we will encourage the use of scripts in lessons to engage students for better conceptual understanding.
