CPD: Live Online Sessions

Great to see that some people have made a start on the self-paced diagnostic assessment course I posted about earlier in the week.  If you missed it, see this post here: CPD: Self-paced Online Learning   As well as continuing to notify people on the blog, any future self-paced learning will also appear on its own page on the Highland Digital Schools Hub

We’ve also just added several sessions to the Highland Digital Schools Hub Online Training Calendar.  Details of the sessions we’ve added are below.

The content would be appropriate for both teachers and PSAs.

Session: An Introduction to Multiplication and Division at Early Level

Date: 07.05.20
Time: 14:00 – 15:00

Target Audience: Teachers, PSAs, EYPs.  ELC, Primary, Secondary, ASN

Session Aims:

  • Recognise multiplication and division opportunities within real & play contexts at EARLY LEVEL
  • Explore word problems as a means of providing a meaningful CONTEXT to support understanding.
  • Identify the differences between grouping and sharing
  • Raise awareness of the need to work flexibly within the teaching model
  • Recognise the variety of language used at Early Level
  • Raise awareness of the links to other areas of maths e.g. patterns, language, addition/subtraction, number word sequences etc.
  • Explore and evaluate the range of resources we can use for multiplication & division.

Notes:
This is the first in a three-part series on An Introduction to Multiplication and Division.  We recommend that to get a better grasp of the progression, you attend all three sessions and not just the level you are currently teaching.

 

Session: An Introduction to the Language of Maths (Part 1: Early)

Date: 12.05.20
Time: 14:00 – 15:00

Target Audience: Teachers, PSAs, EYPs.  ELC, Primary, Secondary, ASN

Session Aims: 

  • Raise awareness of maths language used within our daily interactions
  • Identify daily opportunities where we can develop maths language and enhance understanding
  • Improve confidence to use WORDS UP key messages for maths
  • Identify an aspect of our practice we would like to develop 
  • Agree next steps for our setting/class

Notes: 

 

Session: An Introduction to the Language of Maths (Part 2: Primary and Secondary)

Date: 14.05.20
Time: 14:00 – 15:00

Target Audience: Teachers, PSAs, EYPs.  ELC, Primary, Secondary, ASN

Session Aims: 

  • Explore how understanding etymology and morphology can help us make better sense of language and build connections.
  • Explore how the use of Frayer Models can improve understanding of mathematical language.

Notes: 

  • Frayer Models can be used for other subject areas too e.g. literacy, science, technology, geography etc. so these could be used across the curriculum – they are not exclusive to maths!
  • This is the second in a two-part introductory series on the Language of Maths.  We recommend that to get a better grasp of the progression, you attend both sessions and not just the level you are currently teaching.

 

Session: An Introduction to Multiplication and Division at First Level

Date: 21.05.20
Time: 14:00 – 15:00

Target Audience: Teachers, PSAs, EYPs.  ELC, Primary, Secondary, ASN

Session Aims: 

  • Extend understanding about the difference between grouping and sharing.
  • Explore the relationships between multiplication and division.
  • Explore the progression with multiplication and division at First Level including:
    • Skip Counting
    • Repeated Addition
    • Multiplicative strategies that involve known facts
  • Explore how different concrete materials and visual representations can support understanding.

Notes:
This is the second in a three-part series on An Introduction to Multiplication and Division.  We recommend that to get a better grasp of the progression, you attend all three sessions and not just the level you are currently teaching.

 

 

Session: An Introduction to Multiplication and Division at Second Level

Date: 28.05.20
Time: 14:00 – 15:00

Target Audience: Teachers, PSAs, EYPs.  ELC, Primary, Secondary, ASN

Session Aims: 

  • Extend understanding about the difference between grouping and sharing.
  • Explore the relationships between multiplication and division.
  • Explore the progression with multiplication and division at First Level including:
    • Use of the area model to support multi-digit multiplication and division and an awareness of how this extends into work at Third Level and beyond the BGE.
    • Supporting understanding of other mental strategies
  • Explore how different concrete materials and visual representations can support understanding.

Notes:
This is the third in a three-part series on An Introduction to Multiplication and Division.  We recommend that to get a better grasp of the progression, you attend all three sessions and not just the level you are currently teaching.
