Maths - Tuesday 20th April
The "Community of Practice - Post Primary Maths " meeting will take place on Tuesday the 20th April at 7pm.
This workshop will focus primarily on the following:
- A variety of teaching methodologies to include in our planning and daily lessons with students online.
- The integration and use of a stylus pen to incorporate into our online learning platforms and assist in our teaching strategies.
- Useful platforms for generating data and examples for a variety of topics.
A discussion will take place at this initial meeting to uncover the emerging needs of the group and to effectively plan for the next meeting. The possibility of a guest speaker will be explored, as well as any other areas that teachers feel they require support in going forward.
The objective of this Community of Practice is to bring together teachers of Maths and build a network and database of sharing resources which may be incorporated into our teaching methodologies. We hope to encourage and facilitate discussion amongst teachers in an attempt to maximise the level of knowledge and expertise gained during each session.
