Are you challenged by the transition to teaching mathematics in an online medium? Have you considered using the TQE Process to support learning in a remote setting? In this motivating session, you will learn strategies for engaging students in productive mathematics tasks uniquely selected for this session. You will explore these new tasks, develop targeted questions, and anticipate student responses as you prepare to support discourse and provide scaffolding to facilitate effective instruction in remote learning environments. The included tasks – specific to grade band sessions – will be new ones.

Fighting Fixed Mindsets: Five Classroom Culture Shifts for Mathematics Teaching and Learning
Description: The instructional choices teachers make impact not only classroom lessons, but how students feel about their ability to learn mathematics. Juli Dixon asks, “Do your school and classroom norms fight fixed mindsets or support them?”
Dr. Dixon helps participants make sense of five classroom culture shifts to support students while engaging in the mathematical practices. By examining school and classroom structures that might inhibit growth mindsets, teachers discuss ways to adjust those structures. She helps teams create a shared image of what it looks like when students are set up to succeed.
I recently heard Will Richardson describe the last few months resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic as a “printing press moment.” From your lessons in history you may well recall that the printing press was a “disruptive force” that changed the world, societies, and how man and civilization progressed from that point on.
Could this indeed be a “printing press” or disruptive moment for education for which we have long hoped? How do you view this epic time in our lives - as a challenge or an opportunity to forge new directions for schools, learning, and education?
Join me to explore some of the issues that have presented school leaders, teachers, students and their families to cope with learning in this new environment. We will examine some of the issues and challenges with which we have been presented. How might we address them and how can we leverage them to forge a new direction?
