For teachers in Sydney, I hope to see you at the TeachMeet for the Australian Curriculum in Maths – this week, Thursday 1st August 2013.
A new help page on MathsLinks has 6 videos to help you, your staff or colleagues get acquainted with using MathsLinks. The videos total just under 6 minutes and cover signing up, using a link page, sharing from MathsLinks, browsing, submitting a link and getting updates. Ideal for a faculty meeting or staff development day activity.
A reminder about the new feature added this week. You can now leave a comment on any link or resources shared on MathsLinks and MathsFaculty.
The comment might be a teaching idea or a review of the resource.
In January, I wrote “let’s make 2013 the Year of Sharing”. We probably all know that some of the best sharing is not a specific link or a tangible resource, but an idea. Those discussions may happen in the staffroom, over a coffee, on playground duty or on a social network.
