This session considers research on and practices for preparing early childhood teachers to locate, evaluate and implement virtual manipulatives. In recent years, a number of websites have been developed that contain "virtual" versions of many of the popular real-world manipulatives. Virtual manipulatives are interactive, web-based, computer-generated objects that enable children to explore mathematical concepts through exploration of computer-generated objects. Some popular virtual manipulatives for early childhood settings include attribute and pattern blocks, geoboards, base blocks, color patterns, and tangrams.
