Video Conferencing in Primary School Mathematics

Adam Boddison

University of Warwick

how the project came about
How the project came about…
  • A need to provide for most able children in primary schools (could work for any ability group)
  • Meeting of Headteachers…
  • Partly logistics/cost and partly by design
  • Focus on pedagogy rather than technology
aims and objectives
Aims and Objectives
  • To create a gifted and talented mathematics community
  • Improve the transition process
  • Development of independent learning skills
  • Improve key skills; confidence, communication…
  • Increase attainment
challenges
Challenges
  • Funding
  • Timetabling across 7 schools
  • Technical issues (one-man show!)
  • Behaviour management (remotely)
  • Monitoring pupils (on task)
  • Supervision Issues
  • Number of pupils at each endpoint
  • Differences in times!
progress to date
Progress to date
  • Small number of pupils going to state school rather than private school
  • Pupils taking more responsibility for their own learning
  • Positive impact on other ability groups not involved with video conferencing
  • Perception of maths; enthused and motivated
progress to date1
Progress to date
  • Use of music as a trigger
  • Design of tasks; open-ended and differentiation by outcome
  • Development of behaviour management strategies
  • NO decrease in attainment
comments from the pupils
Comments from the Pupils
  • The work that we get challenges our ability more than the usual maths lessons down in our year 6 classroom
  • I really enjoyed the video conferencing and hope I might be able to continue it at secondary school.
  • I didn't think maths could be this fun and I love a lot of challenges.
comments from the pupils1
Comments from the Pupils
  • I think I've got better at working out sums and problems.
  • There's only one thing I don't like about the video conferencing and that's that sometimes the screen freezes.
  • I really enjoy video conferencing it's the highlight of my day on Friday and I always look forward to it.
comments from the pupils2
Comments from the Pupils
  • I am a lot better at problems now it's also really fun.
  • I found out that it's definitely a lot harder to prove some thing true than prove something wrong.
  • Video Conferencing is the best block of lessons I've ever had and given the chance I would jump to do it again.
