Who’s With Us?

Who’s done Cooperation or Coordination with Math Teachers?

How about Collaboration?

Who would like to make Collaboration happen with Math Teachers?

slide9

“Math teachers are under a lot of pressure and don’t have room in the curriculum”

“We don’t really have math books”

“Math teachers have their own tech”

“I don’t know math well”

“The math teachers are too busy to co-plan”

“I’m not able to make tech purchasing decisions”

“I don’t know how to help”

Collaboration Obstacles

X = Perspectives and Communication

slide10

“I don’t think the librarian really knows math”

“Tech gets in the way”

“There’s no way I can fit anything else into my curriculum”

“We’ve never tried that”

“I already get the PD I need”

“The librarian is so busy”

“I find my own resources”

“I don’t need help in my class”

Collaboration Obstacles

X = Perspectives and Communication

slide11

X = Finding Fertile Ground

  • Cooperation
  • Getting into Common Core
  • Hand-picking digital resources & media
  • Coordination
  • Authentic math learning through tech
  • Embedding math into other content areas
  • Collaboration
  • Picking out PD
  • Co-planning the perfect “fit”
slide12

X = Finding Fertile Ground

  • Curriculum Approaches
  • Seeing broadly – getting beyond drills and skills
  • Authentic Learning - focusing on inquiry and finding math in everyday life
  • Support, Support, Support
  • Empowering the LMS – confidence is key
  • Bridging the gap – school and district leaders as connecting agents
