Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

A simple guide to running a remote maths classroom

As schools consider how they deliver teaching while students are at home, this is a great opportunity for teachers to re-think their classroom approach, instead of replicating the physical classroom online.

Like many other edtech platforms we are offering our maths platform, Mathspace, for free to any schools preparing for shutdown. But the real challenge is not which platform to use, but how to effectively use combinations of digital tools to set up an online learning culture.

In this webinar, educators will take you through a range of digital tools that they've used in their online classrooms.

This 45 minute webinar will be held on Thursday 9th at 4pm (UK time). You will learn:

• How to prepare your students for school closures
• Our favourite digital tools for an online maths classroom
• How to use Mathspace to amplify your digital classroom
• Strategies to keep students engaged and create a class community

About the speaker:

This session will be run by Jillian Green. Jillian Green has taught high school maths in California via an entirely virtual classroom. She has also taught Cryptography in Asia, the Middle East, and online. She is currently working in the curriculum team at Mathspace

  • The Middle Years Programme: complementing the Ofsted framework Recorded: Jun 11 2020 60 mins
    Dr Peter Fidczuk - IB Development and Recognition Manager, UK and Ireland
    Last year, Ofsted published its new education inspection framework, which places emphasis on the breadth of a school’s curriculum offer. The International Baccalaureate’s (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) is a flexible skills-based framework of education that promotes the breadth required under the new framework.

    If taught in line with the National Curriculum, the MYP can develop students as autonomous learners through its inquiry-based approach to learning and teaching, the IB’s philosophy and its learner profile; ensuring that students are better prepared for the challenges of GCSEs. The programme can be taught in several formats of two, three, four or the full five years to suit each school’s context.

    Sign up to the webinar to find out how the MYP can benefit your school community.

    What will the webinar cover?
    • What is an IB education
    • Introduction to the MYP and how it works
    • How the MYP complements the new Ofsted framework
    • An introduction to the MYP assessment
    • MYP success stories

    Presented by:
    Dr Peter Fidczuk
    IB Development and Recognition Manager, UK and Ireland

    Peter is the UK Manager for the International Baccalaureate, and the University Admissions Manager for IBSCA, the network of IB schools and colleges in the UK. Additionally as many countries benchmark against the UK, he also works with IB World Schools and networks across the Africa, Europe and the Middle East regions. In these capacities, Peter works to support schools, teachers and students on the development of an IB education. Prior to this, Peter was Assistant Head Teacher at Dartford Grammar School, where, as Director of International Baccalaureate, he managed the school’s Diploma Programme and the introduced the Middle Years Programme so that the school became the first state school in the UK to gain accreditation for the MYP.
  • What can we do to prevent an educational melt-down in future? Recorded: May 27 2020 46 mins
    Andrew Howie is a Director at e-Learning WMB and has over 19 years’ experience in teaching and education.
    In just a few short weeks, the ‘normal’ educational schedule was thrown into chaos. Schools, colleges and universities were faced with complete shut down - no pupils, no teachers and a significantly reduced ability to deliver lessons in a meaningful way.

    Despite their best efforts many schools have struggled to adapt to the current crisis, with teachers under a lot of strain to keep lessons going without systems designed to help them manage their curriculums appropriately.

    As time has progressed, many people (particularly parents) have asked why technology, that is increasingly used in our private lives (particularly younger generations), is not being utilised to its full potential in education. Experts in the industry are already predicting the impact of coronavirus will compel many institutions to rethink their learning strategies.

    This webinar will present Open eLMS Live - a system designed to help teachers deliver a timetable of classroom learning remotely using existing teleconferencing systems and online learning resources. We are confident that you will see the benefits of running this remote learning platform now and also when your school reopens. It will also enable you to create a plan of action should a shutdown be necessary at any time in the future.
  • Facilitating Remote Learning Recorded: Apr 30 2020 45 mins

    iPad has changed the way we work, play and learn and so with learning no longer confined to the classroom or traditional classroom hours, schools are re-evaluating their learning environments to accommodate an at-home, virtual learning experience.

    The ability to make this fully functional and effective falls squarely on school administrators, curriculum designers and teachers. With the right tools in place, virtual learning can be as intuitive and engaging as in-person. With Apple technology becoming increasingly popular in the education space, the iPad seem to be the go to device for both remote learning and in the classroom.

    In Jamf School’s webinar, Facilitating Remote Learning, we explain how it’s not only possible to fully support remote learning, but help students and teachers alike thrive and stay connected all from the comfort of home with iPads whilst ensuring success in the classroom too.

    You’ll learn:
    • Best practices for maintaining engagement and participation in a virtual classroom setting
    • How to facilitate engaging online discussions, lessons and interactions
    • How to harness the power of parents to keep students focused

  • Making effective use of curated video content in the digital classroom Recorded: Jan 13 2020 76 mins
    Jonathan Swift, Managing editor of Education Today
    Video-Assisted Learning – Making effective use of curated video content in the digital classroom

    Approximately 70% of educators use video in the classroom multiple times per week. Finding appropriate, safe and curriculum-aligned videos can be time consuming, relying on multiple sources and video providers that may infringe copyright, contain inappropriate ads or be mis-aligned with the teacher’s needs. ViewSonic and BoClips have partnered to provide “myViewBoard Clips”, a Video-Assisted Learning platform that empowers educators with a curated library of videos. With subject and age-mapped videos accessible from inside the digital whiteboard, lesson activities and student worksheets can be enhanced with video content more easily than ever before.

    In the webinar we will be joined by Beth Denham, Product Manager for BoClips, and former teacher and education leader to discuss teaching and learning with videos.

    Matt Smith, EdTech Product Manager for Viewsonic will discuss how this novel platform can integrate with the digital whiteboard, to enhance preparing, presenting and participating in video-assisted lessons.

    We will also be joined by Paola Sagastuy, Faculty Leader for Languages at Ashford School, to explore how she uses curated video content in her MFL and ESL lessons.
  • What can we do to Address the Decline in Pupil Mental Health and Well-being? Recorded: Mar 6 2019 60 mins
    Jonathan Swift
    Education Today’s popular webinar series is now in full swing for 2019, and up next for discussion is a topic currently making the news – pupil mental health.

    In the webinar “What can we do to address the decline in pupil mental health and wellbeing”, The Outward Bound Trust will be examining the multiple aspects of this worrying and complex issue.

    We expect young people to successfully function in our rapidly changing society, with increased pressure on them to perform academically at an earlier age and at a faster rate. Are our expectations realistic? For this generation, leisure time can often mean isolating screen time, resulting in the erosion of positive face-to-face social interactions and engagement in outdoor, natural and nurturing environments which are proven to boost mental wellbeing.

    Two prominent teachers explore with us the state of their pupils’ mental health, and review what current research is telling us about this issue within the wider context of UK education, sharing the interventions they have successfully adopted inside and outside the classroom to help encourage mental health and wellbeing.

  • Four Simple Steps to Creating Your School's ICT Strategy Recorded: May 26 2016 35 mins
    Jonathan Swift
    Does your school have an IT strategy? If the answer is ‘no’, you’re not alone. Many schools make reactive purchasing decisions. Perhaps something has gone wrong that needs fixing or you have money left in the pot at the end of the year which needs spending.

    One thing is clear, this isn't the best use of budget in the long term.

    The big question is, how should schools decide to spend their precious (and dwindling) resources?

    One way, is to have a clear ICT strategy. But when we ask headteachers the question “What’s your ICT strategy?” they can’t answer it, because they don’t know.

    They are educators, not techies after all.

    One solution is an Outcomes Framework for ICT in Education.

    This would enable you to adopt simple and effective ICT strategies that everyone (including pupils, staff, parents and governors) can understand and get behind. It can be linked to the School Improvement Plan, and it can demonstrate where you’re making improvements. It will show you where you need to invest that precious budget.
  • Making Your School Systems More Efficient Recorded: Jan 13 2016 57 mins
    Jonathan Swift
    As the goal posts for attainment and achievement are being moved, while budgets are frozen, School Business Managers and Bursars are having to find new ways to save time and money in the race to become more efficient. Having purchased labour-saving systems including homework, behaviour, library or parental payment systems, many schools will end up with a number of business support suppliers. Often requiring multiple logins, many different points of contact, different levels of access to the school’s MIS and several bills, a school’s multiple and diverse systems can become a whole new level of administration in themselves.

    The common feature with all of these systems is that they require a communication system enabling contact with parents, students and staff. But this is also an additional system in itself.

    Join Steve Baines, Business Development Manager and Data Security Officer at Groupcall , to find out about the pitfalls of working with multiple systems, how to identify where there are problems, and ultimately how you can consolidate these systems and make sure all parts of your school infrastructure work together
  • Making the best ICT buying decisions for your school Recorded: Dec 7 2015 52 mins
    Jonathan Swift
    In these days of spending freezes and real-term cuts, it is more important than ever to focus on getting value for money from your school's IT budget.

    Hosted by Education Today editor Jonathan Swift and Neil Watkins of Think IT, this vital webinar will show you how to manage tough choices and prioritise efficiencies and savings to ensure your school's IT infrastructure remains appropriate to your needs.

    Think IT’s Neil Watkins will discuss:
    - Key problems that schools have with procuring ICT
    - Problems of responsibilities under the European Public Contracts Directive
    - Problems of Awareness – knowing what to buy, how to keep up with the rapid pace of change in technology, and how to stop making snap buying decisions that cause you problems later as well as waste your school’s precious budgets
    - Problems of lack of Skills – lack of skills in the procurement, evaluation and commissioning process
    Neil will give examples that all schools can relate to, then move on to practical places to go to for help.

    You will have the opportunity to ask questions and gain insights into how to make the best decisions.
  • The Power of Playful Learning Recorded: Apr 28 2015 46 mins
    Jonathan Swift, Managing Editor Education Today
    At LEGO Education we believe we require more progressive, creative approaches in the classroom – delivering inspirational lessons and approaching all curriculum subjects in enjoyable and engaging ways.

    So should creativity become the pre-requisite to teaching our children in order to harness their potential? Will a more playful approach help prepare today's pupils for tomorrow's world, giving teachers the tools to embed creativity at the heart of a successful approach to learning?

    Join Managing Director of LEGO Education, Dr. René Lydiksen, as he explores how a playful, creative and hands-on approach to learning is more likely to inspire students and develop skills that are relevant for the future.
  • Beyond levels: adapting to a levels-free era in education Recorded: Oct 13 2014 31 mins
    Jonathan Swift. Managing Editor Education Today
    Join Graham Cooper as he discusses how schools must adapt to a new level-free era in education.

    For the last 20 years, schools across the country have monitored progress in terms of levels set by the government. Schools are now awakening to a new dawn when they must decide which direction to take now that levels have disappeared.

    In the first of a new series of free Education Today editorial webinars, Graham, who now heads up product strategy at Capita SIMS, as he discusses:

    - The findings of Capita SIMS research which reveal how schools are responding to the changes
    - Where to begin when planning an alternative model
    - Examples of schools who have ventured down this route
    - How an MIS can play a vital role in the transition to life after levels.
