[Help Wanted] Recappers Needed For #NCTM13

NCTM 2013 is on us in two weeks.

  1. It’s a banner year for speakers. I’ll post a few recommendations shortly but you have all the usual institutions plus a few new upstarts from the blogosphere. I’m looking forward to it.
  2. It’s a very expensive ticket. No two ways about that.

So if you’ll be attending NCTM, consider recapping a session or two for MathRecap.com. A photo and a few paragraphs is all it takes to open the conference up to the 99% of math teachers worldwide who can’t attend. Leave your details at the volunteer page if you’d like to help them out.

    I’m a first-year teacher blessed to be attending this conference :) I don’t have a blog yet but have definitely been thinking about starting one. This might just be the impetus (and kick in the ass) that I need! Can’t wait to hear you speak!

    Dan, I’m attending this year and am most interested in middle school math digital content. I’m wondering if you can recommended any of the speakers who might be touching on this area?

    Preaching to the choir here, but if you’re someone who has something to say, it’s beyond me why you wouldn’t say it in multiple media and put some of them on the internet.

    It doesn’t have to be the whole thing. How about a 5 minute video giving your pitch, and whatever handout you’ve already prepared for participants?

    ‘Cause it’s hard.

    ‘Cause that’s hard.

    None of the things we do when we play around on the Internet is intuitive.
