Show Notes:

Summary: In this episode we hear from all of the OAME 2020 featured speakers once more. This time just briefly as they all answer the same question: Is there anything that you believed to be true when you started your career, that you no longer believe? Each gave their particular spin on that question and there was a nice mix of answers (many of which had nothing to do with mathematics. From Thursday's slate of sessions we’ll hear from Mary Bourassa, Dan Meyer, Ian VanderBurgh, Marian Small and keynote speaker Valerie Camille-Jones and from Friday's sessions, we'll hear from Kamau Bobb, Richard Van Camp, Fawn Nguyen and, keynote speaker George Couros.

Talk 12: Manage Flow and Let Go!

Alex Overwijk (@AlexOverwijk) & Jimmy Pai (@PaiMath)

Show Notes:

OAME 2019 Session Description: Participants will engage in math tasks in an environment that is conducive to thinking. Based on research by Dr. Liljedahl, these tasks will enable us to dig deep into the components of a thinking classroom. Collectively, let us learn to manage flow and let go to create a student-centered experience.

Talk 11: Beyond the Invitation: Lesson Structure and Routines that Foster Agency and Equity

Kaneka Turner (@KanekaTurner)

Show Notes:

OAME 2019 Session Description: Do you remember the first day? It was filled with excitement and optimism as you considered the newness of it all. This was followed by anxiety and caution as you considered uncertainty of it all. This description aligns to both students and teachers, yet both are asked to be "all in" from the very first day. Curriculum structures that offer routine and rigour support both teachers and students in their efforts to be "all in" . This session will explore characteristics of the lesson launch and warm up featured in Illustrative Mathematic's curriculum and how these structures promote agency and equity in the math classroom.

Jennifer Wilson (@jwilson828) & Liz Ramirez (@LizRamirez)

Show Notes:

OAME 2019 Session Description: How might we nurture a community of learners, where making thinking visible is safe, even when students make a mistake? In this session, we will consider norm setting, questioning, and listening, as well as strategies, routines, and tasks to jump start conversations that encourage students to take risks and contribute to effective discussions.

Talk 9: Joining the Global Teacher’s Lounge

Matt Baker (@stoodle)

Show Notes:

OAME 2019 Session Description: Whether you're struggling to plan exciting activities for class or just feeling frustrated by the difficulty of the profession, it is really easy to feel isolated as a teacher. Let's just say it: teaching math is hard and exhausting. Coming to a conference like OAME gives us a few days to rejuvenate ourselves and connect with each other. But there's actually a huge community of people online that will listen, offer advice, and generally help you feel less alone all year round. The Math Twitter Blogosphere (or MTBoS) is a global group of math educators that support each other in tackling the challenges of teaching, whether they be practical challenges like activity planning or emotional challenges like supporting struggling students. We love this online community because it has changed our lives as educators, and we want the same for you!

This workshop will introduce the MTBoS and help participants to get online and get connected to the multitude of resources and supports available online from awesome, innovative educators. Time will be given to explore the community, guided by teachers active in the community. No previous experience in social networking is required!

Talk 8: Tell me your mathematical story!/Raconte-moi ton histoire mathématiques!

Jules Bonin-Ducharme (@jboninducharme)

Show Notes

OAME 2019 Session Description: To collaborate is to share our understandings and to make sense of our collective reasoning. In this webinar, we will explore how listening to student’s mathematical story can help create a whole class narrative. By Visualizing, Verbalizing and Verifying, we create this collaborative sense making classroom.

Collaborer, c'est partager notre compréhension et donner un sens à notre raisonnement collectif. Dans ce webinaire, nous explorerons comment écouter l’histoire mathématique d’un élève peut aider à créer un récit pour toute la classe. En visualisant, verbalisant et vérifiant, nous créons cette classe collaborative de création de sens.

Talk 13: A Fusion of Math and Special Education

Liisa Suurtamm (@MathLiisa) & Christine LeBeau (@MrsLeBeau)

Show notes:

OAME 2019 Session Description: With funding from a TLLP grant, a team of Mathematics and Special Education teachers have worked together throughout this year to better understand how to support our students with learning disabilities. Our team met monthly, developed learning profiles, collected data, analyzed psychological assessments, visited mathematics classrooms, and explored various supports for students. At this session, we will share our journey as these teachers worked to better understand the strengths and needs of these students in order to put in place student specific accommodations. By using the expertise of all the educators in the group, both the content knowledge of the Mathematics teachers and the Special Education teachers knowledge of exceptionalities and various accommodations, we all were able to grow in our knowledge of how to support these learners.
