A workshop is organized under the Eurasia Meeting of GeoGebra (EMG), which is hosted by 3rd Future Learning Conference. Approximately 100 math teachers, who are from different cities of Turkey, attended the workshop, which lasts 6 hours in 2 days. In this workshop, teachers are trained on basic properties of GeoGebra.
