Episode #47: How Social Media & Reflection Strengthens PD!

Oct 21, 2019 | Podcast | 1 comment

LISTEN NOW…

We all know that modelling how to be a lifelong learner is important for our students to see, but even more importantly, we need to be constantly learning to be the best math teachers we can be.

While we all have good intentions to grab that next math professional development book or resource, professional development can be expensive and overwhelming.

Where can I find great professional development to avoid doing all the digging and most importantly, how can I find it for free?

Well, you’re in luck because we recently spoke with our good friend and colleague David Petro on Episode #47 of The Making Math Moments That Matter Podcast.

David is a brand new Vice Principal, but spent many years in the position of Math Coordinator for the Windsor Essex Catholic District School Board in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. He is also the President of the Ontario Association of Mathematics Educators (OAME) and many math teachers across Ontario know him as our resident math lessons curator. 

Listen in as we chat with David about resource sharing, online learning, some of his favourite math activities, and how you can get started with them in your classroom! 

You’ll Learn

  • How reflection can help educators and students consolidate learning. 
  • Are there merits to homework? How should we structure homework to be meaningful. 
  • How to find math resources for your classroom. 
  • How to use twitter to maximize your professional learning

In our six module (16 week) online workshop you’ll learn how to build and adjust your own lessons that engage students, build deeper understanding of math, and promote resilience in problem solving.

PERFECT IF YOU TEACH GRADES  3 through 10

We’ll release one module each week for the first 6 weeks. Then you’ll have another 10 weeks to work through the content ON YOUR SCHEDULE!

    Love this idea of using blog’s for more of a selfish cause. A past colleague presented the idea to me as they were finding it redundant to repost all lessons, flipped classroom activities, games, review videos etc on Google Classroom each year onto a new classroom. I am not sure how much buzz you have received way in the Windsor about the Brightspace plateform, which may overcome this need to repost/upload content each year. However, I still see some worth in creating a visually enhanced blog/site to keep all resources. While I am big on making students feel confident and successful in math my professional journey lately has me passionate about mindful and social-emotional learning and therefore am contemplating the creation of a blog to house all resources for myself in addition to housing a place for all supports for students. I have done some work with Google Sites and had my own blog years back when teaching in England using blogger I think it was, but wondering if either of you two or even your guest David Petro would recommend any blogging platforms. Also, love you podcasts! Keep em coming!
