I gave a keynote last week in the district where I grew up, to teachers who taught me when I was fourteen, which was all kinds of nervewracking. The coordinators asked me to speak on technology, which isn’t my usual speaking assignment, and I was grateful for the opportunity to arrange my thoughts.
The talk is thirty minutes and includes:
- the two best lessons I learned from the two best math teachers I had in high school.
- my best guess at the value added by a math teacher to this post-Khan Academy world of ours.
- the three criteria I use to decide whether or not to invest time or money in a given tool.
- a fairly comprehensive list of all the tools I use in my curriculum development.
I also gave a workshop targeting math specifically. You can find the sessions page for both here: http://ukiah10.mrmeyer.com/
