Teach 180: GMD Shoutout (Day 142)
If you haven't heard of the Global Math Department, then you are missing out. It is educators sharing their ideas, free of charge on Tuesday nights at 9 PM EST. Topics are varied and include teaching ideas, assessment, technology and more. Plus the talks span multiple grade bands. I coordinate the hosts for each session and often serve as host myself. Hosts help with tech glitches and moderate the chat room. We have had some big names in the math education world present, including Matt Larson (NCTM President), Denis Sheeran (Hacking Mathematics), Michael Fenton, James Tanton, Rose Mary Zbiek, Dan Meyer, John Stevens (Classroom Chef), David Wees and others. Sessions are recorded and you can access any of them once you join the GMD for free. If you are interested in presenting a session or helping with hosting, please post a comment to this blog entry.
